According to reports coming from DAILY POST, Ebonyi Youths under the platform of a coalition of Youth Leaders Forum, including all the major youth groups and NGOs, on Saturday, called on the gubernatorial candidates of the PDP and the APGA, to withdraw all prosecutions against the Governor-elect, Francis Nwifuru.

In the report, it was recalled that the governorship aspirants of PDP, Mr. Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, and that of the APGA, Prof. Ifeanyi Benard Odoh, had taken Nwifuru of the ruling All Progressives Congress, to court, questioning the process that led to his success during the last governorship poll that took place on the 18th of March, 2023.

The report has it that the youth groups made this known in a message signed by Raymond Okoro of NYC, Godwin Emerji for NYCN, Stanley Kamani for NGOs & CSOs, Chief Ben Nwovu for Izzi Nnodo Youths Forum, Chukwunweolu Emmanuel for NANC, Emeka Julius for Grassroot Youths and Emmanuel Ibiam for EPM and made available to journalists in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi state.

“We the youths of Ebonyi State as the realistic prospects of Ebonyi Project, hence call on our forthcoming leaders in Ebonyi State and co-youths, in the persons of Chief Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii (Anyichuks) and Prof. Benard Ifeanyi Odoh to as a matter of necessity and for the interest of Ebonyians and the growth of Ebonyi State withdraw their prosecutions and all lawful dilemma against the last governorship poll in the state", the statement reads.

“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.
