Ebonyi State Governor, David Nweze Umahi has boasted that there is no where in his state for any opposition political party to sweep.
Umahi, who spoke when a delegation from Ohaozara, Onicha and Ivo Federal constituency as well as stakeholders from Onicha-East constituency paid him a new year homage.
He explained that his efforts to transform the state had made it impossible for the broom to be useful.
The governor, who apparently was making reference to the All Progressives Congress and its symbol in the state, added jokingly that “our people doing handiwork have refused to produce brooms again.”
A statement on Saturday evening by Umahi’s Chief Press Secretary, Emma Anya, however quoted the governor as having said that the only recognisable APC member in the state was President Muhammadu Buhari.
Umahi, according the statement, said, “When you have broom in Ebonyi State where will you sweep? Is there any place to be swept? Is Ebonyi not clean? Is Ebonyi not neat?
“There is nothing to sweep. They have to take it (broom) to places that are dirty and continue their sweeping. But in Ebonyi State and because of the kind of people in APC our people doing handiwork have refused to produce brooms again. So, there are no brooms in Ebonyi State because we have made everywhere to be very clean.
