GOVERNOR Martin Elechi of Ebonyi state, Friday, alleged a plot by his opponents to assassinate him ahead of next week’s governorship election.
He described the assassination plot as devilish adding that none of the antics of his opponents would deter him from marching forward and transforming the state in a broadcast to the people of the state noted that the PDP-led government would remain firm in its commitment to a peaceful environment for orderly elections
adding that the supporters of the party had been either killed or maimed while some are lying critically sick in the hospital resulting from the wicked activities of his opponents.
He said: “the falsehood being circulated in pamphlets, handbills and newspapers by my opponents are not even as devilish as their plan to assassinate me and snatch ballot boxes on election days. None of these antics will deter us from our resolve to march forward and turn Ebonyi state to a state of envy in Nigeria.
