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.
