Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ebonyi State Chapter, Stanley Okoro Emegha, has given conditions for the issuance of tickets for the local government elections.
Emegha, on Monday said local government chairmen that perform well in the forthcoming Ebonyi South Senatorial Zone bye-election will be given second term tickets.
Emegha made this known in a statement signed and made available to newsmen in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State, according to Daily Post.
He reiterated that chairmen of the council areas must perform convincingly towards the victory of the party’s senatorial candidate, Anthony Okorie Ani.
“I stated categorically clear that any chairman who did not win convincingly the Ebonyi South Senatorial District bye-election with about 85 to 95% of the ballot cast will not be given ticket to participate in the forthcoming local government area poll.
“The same charge was extended to other government functionaries so that the party could secure the people’s mandate and cruise to victory at the end of the day.
“Actually, they were all persuaded to do the needful but with a clause to comply strictly with the rules guiding the game,” he said in a statement.
