The Councillors of Ezza South Local Government Area in Ebonyi State have refuted claims made against the executive chairman, Mrs. Euphemia Nwali by member representing Amegu Nsokara ward, Hon. Ikechukwu Ukpabi.

During the council’s budget presentation, Hon. Ukpabi allegedly disrupted activities, causing chaos and destroying properties worth millions of naira at the local government headquarters in Onueke.

The councillors reaffirmed their commitment to supporting the first female Executive Chairman in delivering democratic dividends to the grassroots.
