Governor David Umahi has called on Igbos to support the reelection of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos. He also asked the South-Easterners to support other APC governors and Governor Nyesom Wike (PDP) in Saturday’s gubernatorial and state assembly elections.
He urged the Igbo people to support the government in power in their various states of abode to have peace.
“Ndigbo should support APC governors, in particular, support Babajide Sanwo-Olu in Lagos and Nyesom Wike in Rivers, among others. It is where a man lives that he prospers as you can’t be staying in a place and plot against its people,” said the Ebonyi governor.
Mr Umahi said this on Tuesday in Abakaliki while addressing stakeholders and people of the Izzi clan ahead of the March 11 governorship and assembly polls.
Mr Umahi urged the Izzi people to be united to win the gubernatorial poll because it was their turn, according to the existing charter of equity in Ebonyi.
“I cannot support anybody from the Southern senatorial district as myself to succeed me. Anybody from Izzi supporting someone from the south to become governor is not normal, but you should not fight such a person,” the governor explained. “Such a person has already destroyed him or herself because this is payback time for you for supporting the south in 2015.”
The chairman of the Abakaliki council area, Ebere Nwogba, thanked the governor for convening the meeting and appreciated his good intentions towards them.
