Published

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has challenged his River State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, to a debate over who has delivered more democracy dividends to his state.

 “Stop Talking Nonsense” - Umahi Challenges Wike, PDP Governors To A Debate

This comes after Wike stated that a ‘psychiatric check’ should be conducted on Umahi for saying that Nigeria needs another leader like President Muhammadu Buhari.

Wike also described Umahi as a sycophant, saying that even Buhari himself knows that God won’t give the country another All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration.

Speaking at a dinner organized in honour of Turkur Buratai, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Umahi slammed Wike saying “you don’t sit on people’s sweat and resources and be talking nonsense.”

He challenged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to offer any of their best governors to debate with him if they think they have delivered more democracy dividends to their people than the APC-led administration in Ebonyi State.

“People are taking special interest in Ebonyi State and her Governor, positively and negatively but it is very important to be in the news than for you to say there are thirty-six states, you will name 35 and say what is the other State, we have aborted it, we are now a State to reckon with and we have no apologies.

“When I say I have no apologies, you can talk everything about me but you can not say we have not delivered and so when people open their mouths in PDP to talk about APC, they should know that I belong to APC and if they like, let PDP offer any of their best Governors to come for debate with me and I will defeat any of them, not to be talking and talking. You don’t sit on people’s sweat and resources and be talking nonsense.

“We have no regrets taking our people to the center. We have always played at the center, we are not playing party politics, we are playing politics that will be an advantage to our people, criticize me, no problems but we need resources, we need friendship with the center.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Umahi had also threatened to sack any of his aides who insults President Buhari.
