Ending communal hostilities in the Ebonyi-Nwifuru area will remain my top priority

Posted by

It is the goal of Governor Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi State to put a stop to all forms of communal violence in the state.

During his speech to the state’s residents during the 2023 Ngboejogu Nation Day Celebration, which took place at the Central School Ngbo in the Ohaukwu Local Government Area, Nwifuru made this information public.

Mr. Chinedu Onah, Deputy Speaker of the Ebonyi State House of Assembly, spoke on behalf of the governor, who assured the audience that his administration will not waver in its commitment to guaranteeing the unwavering protection of lives and property.

The news of peace between the Ngbo and their Agila neighboring community in Benue State brought him joy, and he urged all involved to make sure it lasted.

The conviction that more can always be accomplished in a peaceful environment led Nwifuru to underline that his government poured resources into the peace process.

He promised that his administration will build a road connecting Ngbo in Ebonyi State’s Ohaukwu Local Government Area and Agila in Benue State’s Ado Local Government Area as part of its efforts to maintain peace and ease communal relations and commerce.

In an earlier statement, Senator Sam Egwu—a former governor and senator from the Ebonyi North Senatorial District in the 9th and 10th Senates—called on all parties involved to use the event’s successes to pave the way for a clearer path forward for the Ngbo people and end their infighting.

Senator Egwu extended his congratulations to the Ngbo people on the recent peace agreement and urged all parties involved to work toward even greater prosperity, harmony, and brotherhood for the Ngbo people.
