He called member of the public to disregard the rumour making the round that the opposition party group is divided and maintained that they remain united and resolute in championing the course of the union in the state.
In a communique signed and made available to newsmen, the state Chairman commended those who were earlier aggrieved but have accepted to work together for the development of the union, and urged them to continue giving him maximum support for the progress of the union.
According to the statement,”I wish to thank our members who see reason to reunite and form a formidable ground for our progress.
“IPAC as an independent body with its core mandate to advice government, I want to sound it clear that there’s nothing like interim Chairman of IPAC in Ebonyi state.
“We don’t have two chairmen in Ebonyi state, rather, somebody influence my Assistant secretary who was elected and sworn in together with me same day to be acting as a distractor to my government for his or her selfish interest but I must say that Ebonyi state chapter of IPAC is united and formidable.
“I have been able to reunite our aggrieved members because of the trust and this is clear with our esteemed members who graced today’s meeting and are the pillar of the opposition party in the state.

Meanwhile, Comrade Ibeh Immaculater,People Coalition Party state Chairman appreciated the state governor for his proactive measures to addressing recent youth protest, and the opposition party leaders for their solidarity to the growth of the state.
“I commend His Excellency for his good work especially how he handled the palliative distribution by sharing it at the right time and ensuring that everybody benefited from it, except for the fact that some persons hijacked the system to give the governor bad name when he’s not.
“I know that some persons have taking the affair of the union as a personal business for self gain and that’s wrong which some of us have refuse to be part of it because politics is a game of number which is the evident of what transpired here today with tens of opposition party leaders coming together to champion for greater Ebonyi state.
“I sincerely appreciated the chairman, comrade Nwogba Morgan Nnaemeka for bringing the leaders together again, and I am calling those concern to know that IPAC is united and would continue to be a watchdog which is it’s core mandate.
