Umahi Fines APC N5m For Indiscriminate Campaign Posters by Racoon(m): 9:31am On Dec 26, 2022
Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has fined 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).”


“APC is directed to within this period remove all their posters and make good the infrastructure before 31st December 2022. The Governor has decided to forgive all other Political Parties and appeal to them to remove all their posters on all the critical infrastructure before 31st December 2022 and desist forthwith from defacing the State facilities or face similar penalties like APC, Ebonyi State Chapter.

“The Governor appeals to all Political Parties not to take this benevolence as a sign of weakness on the side of Government as Government will seal off all Secretariats/campaign offices of such parties for their failure to remove their posters and or desist from continuously pasting of posters on such critical Infrastructure.”

Executive Order 3 prohibits political parties from using public places such as schools, parks, and markets among others for political activities without seeking and obtaining due clearance from the state government.

The order, signed by the governor in November, also prohibits political parties from using critical infrastructures for pasting posters without obtaining state clearance.

grin Of Governor Dave Nweze Umahi knows he just catching cruise. Perhaps he has forgotten that this is an indictment on the APC Ebonyi State where he is the party leader as the sitting governor.

APC that instituted the worst form of anarchy, impunity, brigandage and lawlessness wants to save itself from APC. Any wonder they are not only the most clownish but clueless, grossly incompetent and wicked set of people to ever grace our national life.

The APC is known for violation of rule of law, & any organisation with disdain for rule of law, cannot stand the test of time.

The APC has a very scant regard and respect for the public and for public opinion. It also has a disdain for the law. That makes it a danger to democracy and constitutional rule".

That's APC business.

Our own business is to elect PO, a president that can make Nigeria a producing nation and lift people out of poverty.

Eye service, the target is PDP.

This fine is just a camouflage, a cover up to deceive the gullible and street Arabs.

This is not what Nigerians need at this point in time.

This one is to shut your mouth when he comes for your party.

It's like akuebube who is always accused of stolen chicken. He bought one chicken and told the whole village he now has a chicken.

He then went on stealing spree

Story for the gods. This guy is gonna do something worst to other political parties in coming weeks.

Reason he is doing this to APC at the moment is for him to use it as reference when he starts unleashing his evil agenda towards the other parties..

Trust and believe Umahi at your own peril.

I like his style, discipline your household first before moving outside so that others will seat right and do things right.
If other parties violates the state laws let them be ready for punishment and fine.

Can he do this 4 years ago?

Can Buhari dole out recent policies on election and financial transaction 4 years back when he was seeking reelection?

Sane Governor. The way these political parties deface cities and towns in the name of pasting posters on public assets n places, even fences of private homes aren't spared in some places.
It is archaic and really backward.
Forget that Umahi is in APC, he is one of those that I believe would do things differently if given the chance. Nigerians need leaders that would start disrupting what alot of us have considered the usual normal.

Is the penalty not for the court to decide?
How can a man act as the prosecutor and the judge simultaneously?

By telling ur own party to remove its posters and pay fine of 5m(cus they can afford it) or face the wrath of the law.Is also another way of telling other political parties to remove their posters or pay fine of 5m and if u can’t afford it,u’d face the ultimate penalty of paying 50m,thus reducing ur opponent to bare minimum grin


Happy Boxing Day everyone

Format. So that when others start putting their posters, he will fine them to cover up that he did same to his own party.
