FELIX UKA; SAMPSON NWAFOR
The council made up of traditional rulers, elder statesmen, and politicians from political parties in the state during a press briefing at the Old Government House, Abakaliki explained that Umahi is most suited to lead Nigeria as her President from 2023.
Engr. Benjamin Okah, Chairman of the Eboni State Elders Council explained, “We have deemed it expedient and most important to present His Excellency, Engr. Dr. David Nweze Umahi to the people of Nigeria for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023. “We make this statement confidently bearing in mind his track record, his belief in the oneness of Nigeria and his detribalised disposition on national issues”.
The Chairman, flanked by other members of the council said that Umahi’s monumental achievements in areas, agriculture, education, commerce and industry, infrastructure, education and human capital development stand him tallest in consideration of the President of Nigeria in the next dispensation.
“In consideration of the above and also the popular clamour for a president of South East extraction, we, therefore, call on Nigerians from different walks of life to come out in solidarity to give support to this project, to support a man of impeccable character with the zeal to develop our dear country to compete with any other nations”.
“The Ebony State Council of Elders, therefore, will start consultations with other states, leaders and other stakeholders to realise this project. Ebony State truly has a good and qualified person in Governor David Nweze Umahi for President and Nigerians will never regret having him.” He added,
“Following and realising that the level of allocation from FAAC to Ebony State is very low when compared with the enormous infrastructural development in the State, we the members of the Ebony State Council of Elders decided to have on the spot assessment of some landmark projects in the State by embarking on visitation of State projects.”
