Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has challenged the People Democratic Party, PDP, to produce the best governors from their party for a public debate, stressing that he will defeat them all.
Umahi stated this while reacting to the statement made by Nyesom Wike that a Psychiatric check- up should be conducted on a Governor who said Nigerians should pray for another President like Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Recall that Governor Umahi after meeting with President Buhari in Abuja told the State House correspondents that God will give Nigeria a President who has a good heart like President Muhammadu Buhari.
Therefore, while replying to the statement credited to Wike and PDP, Umahi said that he has no apologies to make on the statement, added that he’ s better than any of the PDP governors.
His words, ” 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.
” When I say I have no apologies, you can talk everything about me but you can not 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.
” You don’ t sit on people’ s sweat and resources and be talking nonsense.
” We have no regrets taking our people to the center. We have always played at the center, 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 center. ”
