A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim, has berated Ebonyi state Governor, Dave Umahi for accusing him and other prominent leaders in the state for planning violence following his decamping to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In an open letter to Umahi, Anyim described him as delusional and a prisoner of his inordinate ambition.
The letter reads in part, “I would not have bothered to respond to this gibberish by a sinking man but for the compelling need to put the records straight and forewarn the public about the sinister plans of a man who personifies everything ignoble, shameless and despicable.
“Gov. Umahi is pitiably delusional. He is a prisoner of his greed and inordinate ambition. Here is a drowning man looking for who to drag down with him. Gov. Umahi has made his worst mistake after his latest misadventure by taking on me and other noble and respectable sons of Ebonyi State who have served and continued to serve our dear State with resolute commitment, dedication and integrity” the former SGF said.
Umahi has alleged that Anyim, a former Governor of the State and the Senator representing Ebonyi North Senatorial District, Sam Egwu and other members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are planning to recruit members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) to unless mayhem in the state.
“I want the media to note, that I reported an allegation that some Ebonyi people are engaging cultists and according to them some IPOB Members to start killing and causing crisis in Ebonyi State in the name of fighting Ebonyi State Government and the governor and their leader is Senator Anyim Pius Anyim and their members are Dr. Sam Egwu, Senator Obinna Ogba, Mr. Ali Odefa and others……The same Senator Anyim Pius Anyim fought the former Governor Sam Egwu and many people were killed.
“I have also directed security agencies to ensure the implementation of policies on tinted glasses of vehicles in the state, the use of a siren and then their police escort…. If they try to fight the State, this will be their last fight, they will not fight again,” Umahi alleged.
