Governor Umahi reveals plans that Tinubu have for Igbos
If Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, wins the presidency in the election scheduled for next month, the governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has pledged that the Ndigbo people will benefit.
During APC campaign rallies in the Iboko, Izzi local government area, he offered the guarantee and said that Tinubu would look out for Igbos in the same way that President Muhammadu Buhari has.
Umahi thinks that the Igbo people stand to gain greatly from the former governor of Lagos becoming president if they unite behind him.
The governor also said that Tinubu looked for Igbos while serving as governor of Lagos State.
He said: “We are standing with Tinubu and Shettima. They will take care of Ebonyi State the way Buhari took care of Ebonyi State. The way Buhari has been taking care of us that is the way Jagaban is going to take care of the Ndigbo.
“Jagaban was the governor of Lagos State and under him, Ndigbo in Lagos prospered and they are still prospering.
“This speaker has been with me for 16 years from when I was party chairman to when I was made deputy governor and then governor. We are not sentimental and will follow the man who knows the road.
“Tinubu will take care of Ebonyi the way President Muhammadu Buhari is presently doing. If you see anybody contesting governor from Ebonyi South, he is not one of us. We are not in support. When it was the turn of the south, the Abakaliki block came out to support us.”
