He called on Ebonyians both home and in diaspora to continue to give their unflinching support to Governor David Umahi, describing his recent defection to APC as a fruitful venture that would engender more development to the state.

His words: "When I went through most of the projects, I got astonished as to how he was able to do these. I see him as a magical governor. He has done so well in Infrastructural development and human capital development. There is no rival,you can't compare him with any other governor in the country.

"I got to say that the cornucopia of his monumental Infrastructural development speaks volumes of itself.

"I want to say that God will give him the strength,the wisdom to continue the way he has done in Ebonyi State. And I believe that when one has done very well, God will elleviate that person to a higher position.

"I think God will elleviate him to duplicate the same thing he has done in Ebonyi State at the National palace..
It will be a good thing to Nigeria and to all Nigerians," he concluded.
