No Excuses for Non-Performance, Ebonyi Governor Tells LG Chairmen



Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has challenged the caretaker chairmen of the 13 local government areas in the state to remain committed to the provision of democracy dividends to the people at the grassroots.

Umahi told the caretaker chairmen who paid him a New Year homage at his    country home in Uburu,Ohaozara Local Government Area  that  they must think outside the box to generate income and not cite the general economic problem  facing the country as a reason for non-performance.

He also encouraged the chairmen to have the fear of God and passion for the people at heart.

His words, “God did not make a mistake by bringing you on board at a time like this; you have to sit down and think what  you can do.

“And if you fear God and  you have passion for the people, God will definitely meet you at the point of your need

” So, I want to challenge all of us like the economy is challenging us to  do things differently. If you put your mind in stealing money,you will never get anything; but if you put your mind on    the people and passion for the people, money will chase you.

“Remember that it is    God that put gold in the ground. So you don’t know whether there is gold anywhere you have not seen. But let me tell you that the same God will reveal it to you if you have passion for the people.

“There is no way Christ will say feed ‘my people, those that love me’ and he has no means of feeding them.”

Umahi  also urged the members of the LG  Adversary Committee  , liaison officers and  co ordinators of development centres who also visited him, to prepare time-table  for the supervision of   on- going road projects in their localities.
He said, “If the projects are completed, you can   beat your chest any time and say they are  what you did.

“Also, remember to keep the council headquarters clean,and keep a demonstration farm in your development centres,”

Umahi also promised to establish rice mills     in each of the LGAs in the state.

Other groups who were in  Uburu to pay new year homage to the  governor were  the  Ohaozara LGA,Afikpo South Development Centre, Federated Ebonyi  Law Students,   beneficiaries of the Dave Umahi  Foundation scholarship scheme, and  the state chapter of the  Christian Association of Nigeria.

Umahi charged the beneficiaries of the   Dave Umahi  foundation to assist their various institutions stamp out cultism.

He also challenged them to reciprocate the gesture by training one person each from their areas when fully employed in future.
