The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has set a standard of institutional obedience by fining his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the indiscriminate posting of campaign posters.
According to a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation in the state, Uchenna Orji, the ruling party contravened the provisions of the state’s Executive Order 3 of 2022.
According to the commissioner, the move is an attempt by the state government to set an example.
“His Excellency the Governor has decided to use his Political Party APC to set an example and as such, APC is hereby fined the sum of Five Million Naira (5,000,000.00) for contravention of the Laws and Executive Order of the state,” the statement read.
“APC must pay the money to the State IGR account and obtain IGR receipt and publicise the payment in all media platforms including social media before 31st December 2022 or risk being made to pay a default fee of Fifty Million Naira (50,000,000.00).”
