Just few months to the 2023 general election, the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi has banned street campaigns by political parties, threatening to seal off party secretariats and offices of defaulters.

Umahi also banned pasting of posters on critical infrastructure, including electric poles, concrete medians, roads, flyover bridges and other critical infrastructure of the State by all the Political Parties in the State.

The governor, who made this known in a statement signed and issued to newsmen in Abakaliki by the Commissioner of Information and State Orientation, Uchenna Orji, threatened to clampdown on political parties, including his All-Progressives Congress, APC, that littered the infrastructure with posters.

Umahi, however, gave a marching order to all political parties including APC to remove with immediate effect, all the posters that already littered in the state.
