National Chairman of Africa’s largest party, People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus says he is awestruck by the galaxy of projects put in place by Engr David Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi State.
Secondus who stated this on Thursday during the grand finale rally for LGA election in Ebonyi, held at the Ngele Oruta Stadium, Abakaliki, the state capital, also noted that what is said in newspapers and social media is not even compared to what is going on in Ebonyi State under Governor Umahi.
He described Umahi as a god-fearing leader, full of capacity and courage to execute projects that will outlive him attributing the unprecedented development of the state to Umahi’s godly approach to governance.
The PDP National leader who came along with other national Executive Members said characteristics of PDP governors, Umahi has made not only the people of Ebonyi proud but also the party owing to the decoration of the state with massive projects and the people are happy.
Secondus revealed he benchmarked the development going on in the state with allocation from the Federal Government and other accruals which prompted him to ask where such huge resources are coming from.
He also urged party faithful to close ranks and eschew politics of bitterness which leads to killings, calling on INEC to adopt an electronic voting system, a position earlier advanced by Governor Umahi.
“The hand of God is on Ebonyi people. We saw the beautiful projects, we saw the accomplishments of the Governor.
“If you have not seen any miracle, there’s a miracle in Ebonyi State. We met in Government House and I ask, where’s your money coming from? He just smiled.
“That’s the story of the two fishes and loaves of bread. It’s not the amount, but the temerity, the zeal and the will.
“We can see your handwork, we can see your works clearly. It is not just the projects, but the people are happy. In a situation where there are killings and hunger, we don’t know where the economy of Ebonyi State is coming from, but we know it’s coming from heaven. Leadership is in two ways.
“The people trust you and you trust yourself. And the next is to repose and live up to the trust. Each time we see new projects we begin to wonder.
“When his tenure is over, whatever he wants, give it to him. Power only belongs to God almighty. PDP governors have sustained democracy in Nigeria.
“We have taken up the challenge from Governor Umahi.
“Very soon we will start the digital online registration. The desperation for power is too many.
“If people can vote from their home, it will be good. All lives matters, you don’t have to kill anyone. I see where people sit in their car and transfer money, that technology is not from space, it’s not a nuclear technology.
“INEC must have to support digital voting. We must advise the chairmen to follow our leader so that it will be well with them”.
