Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has said that he will take the Ebonyi South Senate Area by force in the state’s upcoming 2023 general election, noting that he will go to the National Assembly to fight for the people of Ebonyi.
According to a statement signed by the governor’s special assistant for media and strategy, Chooks Okoh, Umahi said this at his country house in Uburu, Ohaozara local government area of the state, on Wednesday while addressing supporters.
He said: “I am going to the center to fight for the welfare of the people of Ebonyi; employment, infrastructure. I will fight for the empowerment of the Ebonyi people. We will take it by force.”
The statement further quoted Umahi as saying that he has gained both the ability and the experience to represent not only Ebonyi South, but also the entire state and Ndi Igbo in general.
In addition, he assured his constituents and the entire state of quality representation, inclusion and “a place of honor in the affairs of the country.”
Umahi also tasked the Ebonyi South constituents with supporting All Progressive Congress gubernatorial candidate Francis Nwifuru in the upcoming polls.
