… tips Umahi for Works Ministry

Ohanaeze Ndigbo has described the appointment of Senator Dave Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State, as President Tinubu’s choice to win support from the Southeast region of Nigeria.

The news of Umahi’s nomination as Tinubu’s Minister-designate was met with widespread jubilation in Ebonyi State and across Southeast Nigeria.

The group stated that Umahi’s appointment was seen as a strategic move to inject Igbo ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit into President Tinubu’s “Renewed Hope Agenda.”

In a statement by the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, issued yesterday, the group congratulated Senator David Nweze Umahi, on the development. Adding, “We viewed it as evidence that President Tinubu values obedience, loyalty, hard work, and dedication to party supremacy. Umahi’s obedience in withdrawing from the Senate Presidency contest, as advised by the President, is recognized and appreciated by President Tinubu and Ndigbo.

“The appointment of Umahi is believed to have eliminated any opposition from the Southeast, as he is expected to serve as President Tinubu’s emissary in the region. There are hopes that if given the Ministry of Works, Umahi will bring about transformative changes to Nigeria, similar to what he achieved during his tenure as the Governor of Ebonyi State.

“Umahi’s appointment has revived confidence amongst the Igbo to trust President Tinubu’s administration. Ndigbo believes that Umahi’s experience and humility will enable him to address the challenges faced by the people of the Southeast region and draw President Tinubu’s attention to their needs.

“Ndigbo are optimistic that Umahi’s track records of infrastructural development in Ebonyi State during his tenure as Governor will be replicated on a national scale if he is given the Ministry of Works or Transport. Ndigbo emphasize the importance of deploying Umahi’s wealth of experience to address the infrastructural decay in Nigeria. Additionally, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has extended her congratulatory messages to other appointed ministers from the Southeast, and urge them to be good ambassadors of the Southeast zone”.
