From Felix Uka, Abakaliki
Ebonyi State is agog as the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prepares to receive the partya��s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who is billed to grace a grand rally organised by the southern senatorial zone to shore support for Governor David Umahi.
Already, members of the National Assembly from across the political coalitions of the South, Central and the North in the state, are back home preparatory to the event which will hold at the Government Secondary School, Afikpo today.
Roads leading to and from the venue have been fully decorated with several billboards welcoming Secondus and the governor adorning strategic points into and outside Afikpo.
When The AUTHORITY visited, workers of the statea��s Ministry of Power were seen fixing the street lighting facilities while the EEDC technicians were working on the lines supplying power to the town as the governor was said to have released about N200million to improve electricity supply to the residents.
The Director-General of the Ebonyi Broadcasting Corporation (EBBC), Mr. Timothy Nwachi, the director of media for the committee organizing the rally explained that they were ready for the event.
He said that it was going to be the a�?mother of all ralliesa�?, noted that it was for the southern zone a demonstration of satisfaction by their son, Umahi, who happened to be the first governo rfrom the zone since creation of the state in 1996.
Nwachi said that having made them proud by completing various landmark projects across the state, they want to say thank you to the governor and encourage him to do more as they had endorsed him for second tenure in 2019.
The media boss said that the coming of Secondus would afford them the opportunity to showcase how proud Umahi had made the party in the state as well as lay bare that Ebonyi is wholly PDP and would improve the quantum of votes in the coming elections.
