Umahi: Why I Campaigned For Buhari In 2019

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has admitted supporting the President, Muhammadu Buhari ( retd.) , during the 2019 general election, even as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.


Umahi said this at the foundation laying ceremony of a housing project in his hometown – Uburu – on Monday.
The governor said that his former party should not waste time in accusing him of giving the president 25 per cent of votes during the election.
“ I preached it in the entire southeast zone of the country, that the person who supports us is whom we will support .
“ I joined the APC for the president’ s love for Ebonyi even if for no other reason.
“ My eyes are on the ball– on what will get to my people, ” he said.
Umahi said he plans to submit a proposal for a channelisation work which will cut across the housing project, expressing confidence that the president will approve it.
“ You know I am his son , so you can be sure that I will get the approval .
“ You can say anything you want to say but the president loves me and I love him also.
“ I do not know how this love happened , but you should realise that grace is always upon the house of David, ” he said.
Umahi said he has barred all his appointees and supporters from reacting to verbal attacks from the PDP over his decision to join the APC.
“ I am the father of the state and should be ashamed that Ebonyi is heading into bitterness and disunity .

“ I have decided to forgive all those who wronged me and seek same from those who may have been hurt in this process which I take responsibilities for.
“ We should practice the Christianity we profess and this forgiveness has ensured that my blood pressure has dropped to 110 / 20 from 120/ 20 , ” he said.
The governor, however , said that such gesture should not be mistaken for weakness.
“ The people should know that David is a man of war.
“ God has directed that we stop this fight and we have no regrets being pencils in his hands .
“ I thank all those who intervened in this matter such as the Catholic Bishop of Abakalki diocese , the Christian Association of Nigeria , the state Founding Fathers Forum , Ohanaze Ndigbo socio – cultural organisation among others, ” he said.
