The Governor of Ebonyi State, Engineer David Umahi has been cleared by the presidential screening committee to contest the All Progressives Congress, APC Presidential Primary slated for June 6 – 8, 2022.
IGBERE TV reports that if Governor Umahi emerges in the Primary, he would contest the general election to become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The presidential screening is taking place at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja on Monday, May 30 and 31, 2022.
Governor David Umahi is one of the frontline APC presidential aspirants whose developmental strides in Ebonyi State speaks volume for him.
With Engineer Umahi’s proven track record, it is believed that he can transform both the economy, security, and infrastructural deficit of Nigeria haven proven his capacity, sagacity, and prudent financial management with the meager resources that are entrusted in his hand in Ebonyi State.
Those who never visited Ebonyi State within the past 7 years would surely miss their way at their visit.
Many have inquired if Umahi has a money printing machine installed in Ebonyi State which other states are not privy to have, others have sought to know the actual secret behind the magic that Umahi has done within the shortest period under his watch but Umahi has maintained that his magic is simply “patriotism”, his desire to get the state working, his desire to transform Ebonyi from dust of the nation to a state that can comfortably compete with other developed states in the country.
They simply describes the state capital as the Dubai of Nigeria.
Governor Umahi has several critical projects to his credit, including the best and most beautiful Medical University in Nigeria – the King David University of Medical Sciences, the Ebonyi State International Shopping Mall, President Buhari International Airport, St. Margaret Umahi International Market, the new Government House, 15 twin Flyovers, more than 600 Roads on concrete pavement, industrial clusters, the Olympic Stadium, waste to wealth recycling plant, etc.
The country is currently charged and is waiting for proof of the practice of equity, and fairness, and it is believed that the true practice of equity and fairness is when the plum job rotates between all the 6 zones that made up the country. In this practice, only the SouthEast and NorthEast have been unlucky to take a short at the plum job and Governor Umahi is generally accepted as the most credible aspirant from the SouthEast zone who will win the 2022 election for the party for the reason of his antecedents, and the proof of the practice of equity and fairness in Nigeria.
