The Governor of Ebonyi State, Mr. David Umahi today, January 24, 2020 insisted that Godwin Obaseki will be victorious despite the opposition from supporters of the All Progressives Congress National Chairman, Mr. Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole.
He said nothing will stop the Governor’s re-election because he has done well and deserves to continue in office.
Umahi wxpressed his support for his Edo State counterpart while addressing Obaseki’s wife, Betsy and wives of other Southern Governors who paid him courtesy visit in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State Capital.
The First Ladies were in the state for the Forum’s quarterly meeting.
Governor Umahi hinged his support based on the fact that the Governor has delivered his electoral promises.
Speaking to the First Ladies, Umahi said: “Power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will dot is God that has the final say and I can assure you Ma, you know as an apostle of the most high God I also prophesy.
“And because of the good work your husband is doing for the people of Edo State no man can unseat him.
“I made this statement so that the glory of God will become larger. It happened here in Ebonyi.
“I have a testimony of what God can do. Even in our NEC meeting, when Obaseki speaks, you see Economics.
“You see a man that came from private sector background. And so, we can’t wish that away. So, congratulations to you in advance and to all of us.
“You know we Governors, have so many elections. First is the primary, second one is the poll, then the third one is the tribunal. Then another one is the appeal and then the election of the elections is the Supreme Court.
“So, it is not an easy thing and if the hand of God is not upon you, you can’t scale through all these hurdles. And so, it is God who has brought all of us to leadership and I say double congratulations to all of us.”
