“Such lawful tussles are not decent for the growth of Ebonyi state and infringement of brotherhood and harmony in our socio-political cohesion as a people, reviving from long years of communal marginalization by people who felt Ebonyi State and Ebonyians should be downtrodden and subservient", the statement added.
