Ebonyi Governor Challenges Wike To Debate




(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Ebonyi State Governor, Chief David Nweze Umahi, has stylishly challenged his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike of the opposition people’s Democratic party PDP to a debate over a recent comment by Wike that a Psychiatric check- up should be carried on a Governor who said God will give Nigeria another President like Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

It would be recalled that Umahi had during a visit to President Buhari in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital told State House Correspondents during interview  that he pray that God should give Nigeria another President like Buhari in 2023, because he has a good heart.

Speaking during the  weekend at a dinner organised in honour of Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Tukur Buratai in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital by the state government,  Umahi said he is open to debate with any PDP Governor who feels he has delivered more democracy dividends to his people  than the APC led administration in Ebonyi State.

“People are taking special interest in Ebonyi State and her Governor, positively and negatively, but it is very important to be in the news than for you to say there are thirty-six states, you will name 35 and say what is the other State, we have aborted it.

 “We are now a State to reckon with and we have no apologies” Umahi boasted..

“When I say I have no apologies, you can talk everything about me but you cannot say we have not delivered, and so when people open their mouths in PDP to talk about APC, they should know that I belong to APC and if they like, let PDP offer any of their best Governors to come for debate with me and I will defeat any of them, not to be talking and talking.

“The problem with Nigeria is not the people in the East, West, North, or South. The problem with Nigeria is the lying politicians who can call white black just to stay in power and continue stealing.



“We have no regrets taking our people to the centre. We have always played at the centre, we are not playing party politics, we are playing politics that will be an advantage to our people, criticize me, no problems but we need resources, we need friendship with the centre.

Responding, the Envoy and  former  Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff COAS Ambassador Buratai commended Governor Umahi on his giant stride in  infrastructural transformation of Ebonyi State.

He however,  described  the Governor as a General in strategy and tactics, adding that the Governor has become a household name in Nigeria because of his ardent support to the welfare of the Army Officers.

The Ambassador  expressed appreciation to the Governor for the warm reception offered him and lauded him for the replica of the Dubai Mall, being the Shopping Mall constructed by the Umahi administration among other landmark projects.

Buratai said:  “Let me also say that Governor Umahi is not just a general in development but he is equally a general in Strategy and Tactics.

“Your relationship with Mr. President has worked and has brought about the needed development in Ebonyi State” he remarked.
