He said:

“About one week he took oath of office at the Abakaliki Township stadium, we are astonished that the Ebonyi electorates are yet to see any visible signs of governance, not even the appointment of his kitchen cabinet members.
"Rather, this group has been reading reports that his predecessor, Umahi has still been inspecting works at the sites of some yet-to-be-completed projects in the State."

The AEISCID task Governor Nwifuru to get a hold of himself and perform his duties as expected rather than listen to ex-governor Umahi's dictates.
