Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has said he has no apologies to Ndigbo for attesting to be Obidient to the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.
The Presidential candidate of APC, Tinubu is running a Muslim-Muslim ticket with Kashim Shettima, wherein the Christian communities in the nation are kicking against it.
Recall that Umahi abandoned from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on the ground of unending marginalization of the South-East geopolitical zone by the PDP, particularly on denying Ndigbo the chance of producing the President of the country from Igbo extraction.
INFOXCLUSIVE reports that Umahi, who said he has no apologies for pronouncing support for Tinubu-Shettima, disclosed this during in a town hall meeting involving all traditional rulers, political leaders and elders council of the State with the presidential candidate of APC, Tinubu, at the new government house, centenary City Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State.
The governor focused on that he has no regret for pronouncing support for Tinubu-Shettima Presidential ambition and for defecting to the APC.
As per him: “Everywhere you go in Ebonyi State is APC. We are only Obidient to you Bola Tinubu. We have no apologies. I’m speaking any how because I’m standing on our performances that we have achieved in Ebonyi State.
“Anyone who wants to challenge us, should tell us whether we have not fared better under the APC government. I’m the first son of President Muhammadu Buhari. I hope you (Tinubu) will take me also as your son? I know it’s done.”
Answering, Tinubu assured of his readiness to keep to his words and fulfill all his campaign promises to Nigerians if elected president of the nation, come 2023 general election.
He said: “I’m a promise keeper. I keep my words. We are here celebrating the good works done by a professional Engineer, David Umahi. Many of you are traveling very far and wide building a friendship across the Niger, not minding tribes.”
Prior in a comment, the chairman of Ebonyi State Traditional Rulers’ Council, HRH, Eze Charles Mkpuma, who talked on behalf of all the monarchs, entrusted Tinubu to allow the South-east region the opportunity to produce the next Senate President of the nation in the event that he wins as President of Nigeria.
The traditional rulers gave a chieftaincy title to the Presidential candidate of APC, Bola Tinubu as “Dike di Ora mma 1” of Ebonyi State.
