In a well attended stakeholders meeting held in his Ovumte Ishiagu  country home on Wednesday, the former Senate President urged the people of Ivo Local Government Area and indeed, the entire Ebonyi people to come out on Saturday and cast their votes for the APC candidate, Rt Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, stressing that a vote for the APC Candidate would represent a mark of gratitude to the people of Ebonyi North for their gesture in 2015.

Governor Umahi said his insistence on equity, justice and fairness was to secure a seamless power rotation across the Zones in the State.

"Ishiagu and Akaeze are my homes, I want to thank you that all the political parties came together to support Nwifuru.

"Here is my home, so you will honour me totally. If you honour me totally, I will honour you totally.

"I am working on your water project and I am determined to finish it before I leave office."
