Nwabueze Frank It can’t happen in this period of modern civilization. Pls I advice you use a better camera to scan the Memo, so we can read it very well. By then, we can comment on it for corrections cus that can’t come from a civilized Governor like Engr. Dave.
Onuora Chinonso Gold I think d governor should be too busy for this and moreover he is an enlightened man with much exposure. Personally, I think this is not real
Ogboji Chijioke This is a calculated plan by the Dave Umuahi’s regime to encroach /frustrate the Fundamental Human rights of the Ebonyians as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution (as amended) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Chapter 1V Section 39(1 & 2) of the said Constitution is unequivocal and provides for this. How can a seating government shun it’s citizens from expressing their views/opinions about their government? Who then is the government and who is the government ruling? Even in the hail fire or Prison, there is freedom of speech /expression. This is democratic regime. Even in the military, one is still entitled to hold his personal opinion about issues though there is high sense of autocracy. No one should be intimidated by this letter. Go ahead and seek for facts and do more of your publications on social media. This is a clear evidence that people are sincerely speaking reading all our individual publications. Together we can achieve our dreams.
Long live Ebonyi!
Long live our great Party!!
Long live social media!!!
