Opposition has nowhere to sweep in Ebonyi, says Umahi

The Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Nweze Umahi, says there is no where  in his state  for any opposition  political party to sweep.   
Umahi, who spoke when a    delegation from Ohaozara, Onicha and Ivo   Federal constituency as well as stakeholders from Onicha-East constituency paid him a new year homage   in Ohaozara LGA ,  explained that his efforts to transform the state had made it impossible for  broom  to be useful .
The governor, who apparently was making reference to the All Progressives Congress   and its symbol in the state, added jokingly that   “our people doing handiwork have refused to produce brooms again.”   
A statement  on  Saturday evening by Umahi’s Chief Press Secretary, Emma Anya, however  quoted the governor as having said that the only recognisable APC member in the state was President Muhammadu Buhari.
 
Umahi, according the statement, said:    “When you have broom in Ebonyi State where will you sweep? Is there any place to be swept? Is Ebonyi not clean? Is Ebonyi not neat?
“ There is nothing to sweep. They   have to take it(broom) to places that are dirty and continue their  sweeping . But in Ebonyi State and   because of the kind of people in APC ,  our people doing handiwork have refused to produce brooms again. So, there are no brooms in Ebonyi State because  we  have  made everywhere to be very clean.
“When you’re  walking on our  roads  you will be seeing yourself because the light will be on. So you will be seeing your  shadow  on the road. So there is nothing to sweep.”
The governor however poured encomiums  on  President   Buhari,  saying he is the only recognisable   APC member  in Ebonyi State.
 
 The  President, said the governor , regards  Ebonyi State with deep affection unlike  APC members from the state who do not for the welfare of the people.
  Pledging  Ebonyians unflinching loyalty to the Buhari administration,  Umahi said the  only vote APC would get in  the  state would be that of the President.
His words, “  I have  always said that APC is one man and that’s the President.  The President is  a man with good character  and that’s why we are supporting him and he is supporting Ebonyi State. “Ebonyi State is very dear in the heart of the President but not in the hearts of  he masqueraders  who have not given anybody chalk.
“If  APC will get a vote in Ebonyi State, it will get vote by the President alone and nobody else.”
Governor Umahi explained that his purposeful leadership which, according to him, is  anchored on God, has brought enormous peace and made no other party to exist in the state.
 
He advised the people not to be deceived by those who had opportunity to help others but rather used it to care for themselves alone.
Umahi added, “We  have seen the need for unity in Ebonyi State. We’ve seen the need for equity and fair play in the land of Ebonyi and God is helping us so much in this direction because that’s why we have absolute peace in Ebonyi State and that’s why there is no other party.

 “People  have been deceiving our people for years. Every time they deceive our people  and they have  had opportunity  to buy   houses  in  Abuja. Whom have they   sent to school? Whom have they  paid  their school  fees. The time of deceit is gone.”
