…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media. The recently inaugurated Governor of Ebonyi State, Francis Nwifuru, has addressed the demands for his resignation, which emerged shortly after his administration took office.


He firmly stated his refusal to be influenced by anonymous groups pressuring him to form his cabinet prematurely.

Indigenes Challenge the Governor’s Authority:

In a previous report by Naija News, the Association of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural in the Diaspora (AEISCID) raised concerns about the governor’s leadership and called on him to take full control of his government or step down from his position.

The group alleged that the former governor, David Umahi, was clandestinely controlling the affairs of the state, and criticized the lack of tangible signs of governance, including the absence of cabinet appointments.

Governor’s Deliberate Approach to Appointments:

Governor Nwifuru explained that he is taking the necessary time to carefully select professionals from various fields to assist him in implementing his policies and programs.


He made it clear that he would not be pressured into making hasty appointments solely to appease a particular group, especially one that has historically opposed every administration in Ebonyi State.
