Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has said he has no apologies to Ndigbo for affirming to be Obedient to the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.
The Christian communities in the nation are fighting against the Muslim-Muslim ticket Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, is running alongside Kashim Shettima.
Remember that Umahi left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is currently in power, citing the PDP’s continued marginalization of the South-East geopolitical region, particularly in denying Ndigbo the chance to produce the country’s President of Igbo descent.
According to DAILY POST, Umahi made his support for Tinubu-Shettima known at a town hall meeting with the APC’s presidential candidate, Tinubu, that included all traditional rulers, political figures, and the elders council of the State. The meeting took place at the new government building in the state’s capital, Centennial City Abakaliki.
The governor emphasized that he has no regrets about endorsing Tinubu-bid Shettima’s for the presidency and leaving the PDP.
He said that the APC was present everywhere in Ebonyi State. We simply follow your orders, Bola Tinubu. We don’t apologize. I’m speaking in any case because I’m proud of the successes we had in Ebonyi State.
“Whoever wants to challenge us should explain whether or not we have done better under the APC administration. I am President Muhammadu Buhari’s first son. I’m hoping Tinubu will accept me as his son as well. I am aware that it is finished.
In response, Tinubu informed Nigerians that, should he win the general election in 2023, he would be ready to keep his word and carry out all of his campaign commitments.
I keep my promises, he declared. I stick to my word. We are here to honor David Umahi’s sterling work as a professional engineer. Many of you are moving across the Niger in search of friendship while paying no attention to tribes.
HRH, Eze Charles Mkpuma, the chairman of the Ebonyi State Traditional Rulers’ Council, earlier instructed Tinubu to provide the South-east area the chance to produce the nation’s next Senate President if he wins the presidency of Nigeria.
Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential contender, was given the chieftaincy title “Dike di Ora mma 1” of Ebonyi State by the traditional leaders.
