"Just like what he said on the Channels TV where he promised to replicate his Progressive efforts in Ebonyi at the National level, my Governor is not contesting with anybody but with himself in total obedience with the party's decision".

"Those who knew Ebonyi state before the coming of Engr David Umahi can be the judge.

"Under Umahi, Ebonyi has been transformed and now competes with developed countries.

"Aside the road network across the nooks and crannies of the state, there have been constant streetlight since he took over the mantle of leadership.
