NewsNigeriaPoliticsOhanaeze ndigbo endorses Gov. Umahi, as next senate president

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has endorsed Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State and Senator-elect for Ebonyi South Senatorial zone, for the President of the Senate, in the tenth Assembly.

A press statement on Sunday, issued by Secretary General, Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mazi Okechuwu Isiguzoro noted that it would be fair if the Senate President in the tenth Assembly will be zoned to the South-East geo-political region.

According to the statement, beyond the consideration of the South-East for the position, noted that Nigeria currently needs politicians with spread of acceptance and without bias of religion and ethnicity.

The statement reads, “Umahi fits in this. When some politicians were pursuing selfish interests, Umahi who is currently the Senator- elect for Ebonyi South Senatorial zone took his people into the mainstream of Nigerian politics, just like he saw tomorrow. He has made friends across the divide, he has demonstrated tolerance for all sections and strata, so is most fitted for the cap.

“For the interest of unity, for the gains of Umahi’s proven commitment to one Nigeria, infrastructure and human development, also for the Igbo interest and need to galvanize support for our long sought chance to have one of us stride to presidency in the near future, we seek the support of all to enthrone Umahi as the next Senate President”.

The group further stated that every well-meaning rule is made for general good, “Whatever can stand against this genuine request should be bent to achieve the best for the time.”

In a related development, the State Working Committee of APC Ebonyi State led by Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha, has said that Governor Umahi has the most broad-based and acceptable credentials to lead the red Chamber in this democratic dispensation of renewed hope.
