Again, former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been spanked for mentioning the governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi in his defection game.
FFK had alleged that Ugwuanyi is planning to defect from the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Naija News understands.
Recall that the Lagos-born politician left PDP for APC on Thursday, a development that wowed many people.
Enugu Youth Coalition, EYC in a statement released to newsmen in Enugu on Friday by its National Coordinator, Dr Edwinn Obune, warned Fani-Kayode not to again involve their governor in his political games.
The group berated Fani-Kayode’s claim, warning him to leave Ugwuanyi out of partisan matters.
“Governor Ugwuanyi is a beautiful bride that many men would wish to have a wife because of his unprecedented achievements and the good leadership qualities displayed so far in the state but would like Nigerians to leave him out of partisan matters because there are still many people to be lifted out of poverty in the Coal City,” EYC said.
The statement further states that while political parties are platforms for ascending to power for the sole purpose of delivering good governance to the people, “we (EYC) however believe that it is an abuse of office for anyone to abandon this major responsibility and start dissipating energy on partisan matters when there are still battles to be won against poverty, unemployment, Covid-19, youth restiveness and other challenges that confront our people on daily basis.
“For us in Enugu, we see no difference between APC, PDP, APGA, YPP or any other political party whatsoever but our major concern is better to deal for our people and this political maturity should not be misconstrued to mean that the governor is more interested in partisan matters than delivering good governance to Ndi-Enugu.
“The governor is our illustrious son and we are satisfied with the dividends of democracy he is delivering to our people irrespective of party affiliation.”
EYC stressed they wouldn’t like anyone to distract Governor Ugwuanyi with partisan talks at the moment because “the future of any politician is in the Hands of God and not in the hands of any man or political party as the case may be.”
