OPINION; Fixing Nigeria With Governor David Umahi

By Ogbuatu Chidi Simbad

The problem of leadership has become very crucial in the journey of this nation that it gives many concerned Nigerians sleepless nights. This is the pathetic situation which Chinua Achebe saw when he equivocally asserted that " The trouble with Nigeria is simple and squarely a failure of leadership" . 

Truly, the problem of Nigeria is leadership indeed. Every society certainly needs committed leader or leaders.

This is why Nigerians overwhelmingly voted for  the All Progressive Congress APC in 2015 to usher in quality leadership to Nigerians who had hitherto suffered as a result of bad leadership and so far so good, the All Progressive Congress government has been up and doing in delivering quality leadership to Nigerians . 

In Ebonyi State, our story has been that of the Israelites when God turned their captivity around and it was like a dream. The unprecedented infrastructural revolution in the State is monumental, breathtaking and amazing. The Executive Governor of Ebonyi State His Excellency, Engr Chief (Dr) David Nweze Umahi has within 6years turned Ebonyi State to a wonder.

This is why many are trooping to Ebonyi State to see for themselves how a State that was once backward is now the talk of the nation and on the world map. This is the marvel engineered by Governor David Nweze Umahi within the shortest period of time. The concrete pavement roads, the ultra modern digital Ecumenical Center, the ultra modern world class shopping mall, streetlights, water fountains, ultra modern world class Stadium, New Governor's lodge, New Government House, International Cargo Airport of high repute, Ultra Modern World class  King David University of Medical Science, dualization of Abakaliki - Enugu Road, Abakaliki - Afikpo Road, Margaret Umahi International Market, over 14 beautifully designed flyovers, tunnel etc. All these and more within 6 years, this is amazing, unprecedented and revolutionary indeed. 

As a result of all these antecedents, it is the believe of so many well meaning Nigerians who incidentally have been following the trends of events in Ebonyi State that with His Excellency, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi as an infrastructural mogul, rebuilding Nigeria if given the opportunity to steer the ship of Nigeria will be   unprecedented and revolutionary. He has the required and needed political will to give the country the leadership it deserves. Moreso, he is practically displaying the leadership acumen in the development of Ebonyi State which is endearing him to Nigerians. Rebuilding Nigeria requires experienced, capable and pragmatic leadership which His Excellency, Engr Chief  David Nweze Umahi offers to Ebonyians in a unique dimension.

According to John Newton,  " as the morning pshows the day, the boy shows the man" .  As a Governor, His Excellency, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi delivered so much with so little. In the same vein, the task of rebuilding Nigeria with Gov Umahi will be a success story because he has done it before and can do it again. The way he rebuilt Ebonyi State within the last 6years is an eloquent testimony of what he will do with Nigeria as President.

Let's give him support come 2023 and Nigeria shall be better for it.
