‘You’ve Lost Your Senses’, Gov. Elechi Tells Serving Senator

Ebonyi State Governor, Elder Martin Elechi,
yesterday berated the Senator representing
Ebonyi Central Senatorial District, Senator
Paulinus Igwe Nwagu, saying he has lost his
senses.
The governor was reacting to a publication in
one of the national dailies titled, ‘Ebonyi may
lose presidential votes if governorship
primaries go awry’, which was attributed to
the senator.
While condemning the report in its entirety,
Gov. Elechi regretted that the people he had
assisted to become useful citizens have
debased themselves by making unguarded
utterances.
He said, “As I was reading the pages of
newspapers today (yesterday), I came across
a publication on page 15 of a national daily
titled, ‘Ebonyi may lose presidential votes if
governorship primaries go awry’, by one
Senator Paulinus Igwe Nwagu.
“My position as the leader of the Peoples
Democratic Party in the state and as the
Chief Executive of the state is that it pains
me when the people whom we have helped
to become useful to the society have
debased themselves with unguarded
utterances as they have done in this
publication.
“I condemn the statement. I condemn the
publication and I condemn whatever is
behind it”, he said, adding, “What Senator
Nwagu is saying does not apply here. The
fact that we assisted him to become a
Senator does not mean he can bring us
down”.
