The Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Nweze Umahi, says Ebonyians will vote for President Muhamadu Buhari if he contests any election in the future.
The governor, elected under the People Democratic Party (PDP), while pouring encomiums on the President Buhari said he is the only recognisable APC member in Ebonyi State.
The president, according to the governor, regards Ebonyi State with deep affection unlike APC members from the state who do not care about the welfare of the people.
Pledging unflinching loyalty of the people of the state to the Buhari administration, Umahi said the only vote APC would get in the state would be that of the President.
His words, “I have always said that APC is one man and that’s the President. The President is a man with good character and that’s why we are supporting him and he is supporting Ebonyi State.
“Ebonyi State is very dear in the heart of the President but not in the hearts of he masqueraders who have not given anybody chalk.
“If APC will get a vote in Ebonyi State, it will get vote by the President alone and nobody else”.
The Governor spoke when a delegation from Ohaozara, Onicha and Ivo Federal constituency as well as stakeholders from Onicha-East constituency paid him a new year homage in Ohaozara LGA.
He explained that his efforts to transform the state had made it impossible for broom to be useful.
The governor, who apparently was making reference to the All Progressives Congress and its symbol in the state, added jokingly that “our people doing handiwork have refused to produce brooms again.”
