The continuous attacks in Ebonyi State is described as evil and satanic, planned by enemies of the state to create a state of anarchy in a peaceful state.
This was contained in a press release signed by the President General of Global Peace Movement International UK, Dr. Mike Uyi on Thursday.
Uyi clearly said that some persons are not loosing sleep just to make Ebonyi State become unsafe because of their selfish interest.
“It is a fact that Ebonyi State is one of the peaceful states in the whole of south east and has witnessed great developmental milestones under the leadership of Gov. Dave Umahi and that is not making some persons happy. They believe in suppressing the people”.
According to the statement, the adminstration of Governor Dave Umahi in Ebonyi State has in no small measure provided democracy dividends to the people of the state and created a road map for the overall development of the state.
“The developmental plans of the present administration had over taken that of its predecessors as it has given Ebonyi State an usual facelift within the South-East geopolitical zone of the country”
“Global Peace Movement International has watched with kin interest, the different crisis emanating in Ebonyi State and taken a decision to visit the state to collaborate with the state government to expose those behind these crisis”, Uyi stated.
According to him, Gov. Umahi as accessed by the Global Peace Movement International is not an ambitious, selfish man.
“The only thing in Gov. Umahi’s mind is to see to the development of the state as he has promised during his campaign”.
“All stakeholders must all join hands to track-down those perpetrating problem in Ebonyi State to ensure that peace reigns”.
“The unfortunate breach of peace in the communities has led to wanton destruction and this shouldn’t be allowed to continue”.
“The Fulani herdsmen should also know that their days are numbered in Ebonyi State as far as Global Peace Movement is concerned”.
Dr. Uyi said the resentment and bickering, which has led to misguided utterances and behaviour, by some political leaders according to him have heightened political tension in Ebonyi, since Umahi’s defection from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Global Peace Movement International is calling on all political leaders in the state to cease fire and promote peaceful coexistence amongst all political parties in the State”.
“Governor Umahi’s tenure has been peaceful and had recorded a lot of developmental strides in Ebonyi State and he should not be distracted. His political sojourn to APC is his political right “, Uyi concluded.
