Gov Umahi

Ebonyi state Governor, Engr. David Umahi, has categorically stated that his successor cannot be determined by any power outside Ebonyi in 2023.

He also reiterated that apart from politicians outside the state, that no politician in Ebonyi can also influence his successor.

He revealed that a lot of Ebonyi politicians refuse to attend government programmes in the state, but choose to attend programmes outside the state believing that the leadership of the state can be influenced from outside.

Umahi said this on Sunday, December 15, during a Special Thanksgiving Service at the Christ Embassy Church, Mile 50, Abakaliki.

The Governor maintained that for his successor to emerge, there would be immense prayers across the 13 local government areas of the state, to enable God choose a crop of leaders that will lead so as to prevent the state from being plunged back into the era of darkness.

Stating that politicians are ungrateful set of people who continue to scheme for another position despite occupying one.

He stated: “A lot of our people, when there is programme here they will not come but when there is programme outside the state, they will go there believing that the leadership of this state can be influenced from outside.

“Such politicians are doing so in their bid to wield influence from outside the state with a view to determining who will succeed him in 2023.”

“We have come of age and nobody can influence the elective or appointive positions in this state from outside the state, it’s not possible.

“And all those people who are going to ‘occultics’ or herbalists on this, as far as I came in the name of the Lord they will all be disgraced. The next crop of leaders will come from God in this state and serious prayers will be mounted on this in all the local government areas.”

“Intense prayers will be carried out in the 13 local government areas of the state for God to reveal who will succeed him.”

“I will say that politicians are the most ungrateful people to God. When God has delivered you, the next move is to start looking for another post, it’s a very terrible thing”.

Umahi also assured Ebonyians that a greater number of the people would be empowered in 2020.
