The Governor of Ebonyi state, Engr Dave Umahi has reacted to recent criticisms from Governor Nyesom Wike by challenging him to a debate.
ABN TV recalls that Wike made headlines after he stated that a ‘Psychiatric Check’ should be conducted on Umahi for saying Nigeria needs another leader like President Muhammadu Buhari.
Umahi during a visit to President Buhari in Abuja had told State House correspondents that God should give Nigeria another President like Buhari because he has a good heart.
Speaking at a dinner organised by Ebonyi State Government in honour of Tukur Buratai, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Umahi said he is open to debate with any PDP Governor who feels he has delivered more democracy dividends to his citizens than the APC led administration in Ebonyi State.
In his word; “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.”
“Your Excellency you are a visionary leader and your legacies will endure till the end of time.”
