“We urge them to remain peaceful and be assured that we will keep them abreast of our decision on the way forward,” Mr Asogwa said.

Meanwhile, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chairman in Enugu, Ndubuisi Onyia, debunked rumours that Mr Ekweremadu defected to the party to continue his governorship ambition.
“As we speak, Ekweremadu has not joined APGA in Enugu state unless he did so in another state. So, such rumour, as far as I am concerned, is unfounded,” he said.
