The former SFG who prided in the strength of the party to be returned to power alongside Senator representing Ebonyi North at the National Assembly, Sam Egwu and other party faithful in the state, reiterated that the state, as it were, had been presided over by the PDP, and as such, the latter had resolved to ‘take the bull by its horn towards reclaiming what it had presumably lost.

But since this people came, its only killings that we are seeing. By 2023, all those things will become things of the past”, he opined.
