David Umahi, Ebonyi State Governor and Chairman, South-East Governors’ Forum,
on Sunday, boasted that if he wins the presidential ticket of the All Progressive Congress, he will defeat the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, before 12noon of the election day, Punch Newspaper reports.
The governor, who is a presidential aspirant of the ruling party, spoke when the national leadership of the Nigeria Union of Journalists and National Association of Women Journalists, paid him a courtesy visit at the new Presidential lodge, Government House, Abakaliki, on Sunday.
Umahi said he was not comfortable with the show of financial imprudence exhibited by the presidential aspirants of the PDP during their Party’s primary election in Abuja.
He said, “Assuming I was the President, I would have impounded those vehicles in Abuja. I weep for this country.”
The APC Presidential aspirant emphasised that he left PDP because the South-East was marginalised under it, adding that the achievements he had so far recorded under the APC administration remains unbeatable and indelible.
He called on Nigerians to cast their votes for leaders with enviable pedigree and antecedents, rather than those without the vision to transform the country.
