Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi says the All Progressives Congress (APC) is expecting a harvest of new members across the country ahead of the 2023 poll.
Umahi said this in Abakaliki when he inaugurated the newly-elected local government chairmen of APC in the state.
He charged them to scout for new members for the party.
Umahi, represented by his Deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe, urged them to be disciples of the party in their various councils.
“You should meet individuals who are still undecided on joining the party and convince them that the APC is the moving political train in the state.
“You should also approach those who are asham to openly declare for the party from the opposition and remove all veil of shame from them,” he said.
He advised the chairmen to see their election as a call to duty and not for personal aggrandisement or egoistic reasons.
“This inauguration affirms the party’s trust in you and when you deliver on the mandate, rewards and awards will follow.
“You should stoutly defend the government as it will be a sin to be in the midst of critics and not defend the government,” he said.
Umahi noted that the APC had become a household name in Ebonyi because of his defection to the party in 2020.
“The defection instantly changed the party’s fortunes in the state and the southeast and had continued to cause ripples within the opposition.
“The state has been improving since then as evidenced by its recent second position in prudent management rating by the budget office of the federation,” he said.
