Member representing Ezza South/Ikwo Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Comrade Chinedu Ogah, has hailed the decision of Ebonyi state Governor, David Umahi, to dump the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for the All Progressives Congress(APC).
Ogah described the move of the Governor as a demonstration of the love he has for Ndigbo, hence his decision to put the interest of the South-East first. He called on other leaders from the South-East to follow Umahi’s footsteps.
“I want to specially thank Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State for the bold step he took in joining the APC. I want other Igbo leaders and Governors to join the moving train because the South East deserves a presidential slot. This move by the Governor will unite Igbo to pursue a common goal. Therefore, his decision is for the unity, onness and togetherness of Ndigbo.
Umahi never joined APC for his own selfish interest but for the benefit of the South-East geopolitical zone. South-East needs a shot at the presidency come 2023 as it will unite Igbo with the interest of Nigerians. If any political party zones the presidential race to the South East, it will be a good omen for the zone.
I want Igbos in Delta, Bayelsa, Kogi and other parts of Nigeria to emulate Umahi’s bold step. The unity of Nigeria is more important than the clamour for restructuring. I call on other Igbo in the South East to join the APC.”
