Ebonyi State Governor Dave Ebonyi has tasked the newly inaugurated state Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to tackle critics who distract his administration on social media.
He was speaking at the inauguration of the 15-member committee in Abakakiki on Thursday.
“It is important that the 15 of you take on the social media and those who distract us.
“My mind, soul and spirit are in my state and the projects I am executing, as nothing else appeals to me than the completion of the projects.
“Take-on people who distract us while I take-on the projects.
“Funds will be sourced from private sources, and not from the government, to run the secretariat and pay your salaries.”
The governor lamented that party differences has caused a division in the state and made the state disadvantaged at the federal level.
“Party differences brought so much bitterness and enmity among our people and made us lose so much that should have been gotten at the federal level.
“We presently have a united Ebonyi and in this next level movement, everybody must be given equal opportunity to aspire for any position,” the governor said.
The imagination of the committee was graced by a former governor of the State, Martin Elechi.
Mr Elechi praised the governor for doing “things better” and condemned the non-adherence to party constitutions by politicians in the country.
