PDP’s Umahi Wants Buhari To Seek Re-Election

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, wants President Muhammadu Buhari to seek re-election in 2019.

Mr Umahi, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, told State House Correspondents after meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa on Thursday that it is normal for an elected official to seek re-election.

“Since Mr President is doing his first term and I am doing my first term, it’s my wish to re-contest. So, I will as well wish Mr President the same – to re-contest,” he said.

“Any first-term governor would want to go for a second tenure and if that’s what you wish yourself, you should be honest enough to wish another person the same.”

    “So we will like to make them ready. So there is also a federal Road that is 14.5km that we got the consent of Mr. President to build and the road is fully done. We have 18.5km that is leading to the Federal University, we did that road with concrete and overlaid it with Asphalt, its fully ready.

    “We have 15.5km of Nigercem that road passes through the first cement factory in the country which is in Ebonyi State and it’s passes to Benue, we will build the 15.5 km in the axis of Ebonyi with concrete ,ready for Mr. President to commission. 23.5km of state road we built with concrete is ready for Mr. President to commission.” he said
