Lady Monica Ada Chidinma Eze the Founder and President of David Umahi Nweze Akuburoah Ebonyi Transformation Agenda (DUNAETA), a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) promoting and projecting good governance and virile democracy in Ebonyi State counselled the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi State, Senator Sonni Ogbuoji to stop dreaming of defeating Apostle Dave Nweze Umahi the incumbent Governor and gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as he lacks what it takes to defeat a divinely inspired leader like an all achieving Governor like the incumbent Governor of Ebonyi State.
Monica was reacting to the recent outburst by Senator Sunny Ogbuorji reflected by some media outfits that he is confident of defeating Governor Umahi in the March, 2019 gubernatorial polls in Ebonyi State.
According to Senator Ogbuoji, “I am confident of winning the March 2 governorship election in Ebonyi State because the people of the state, irrespective of political leanings, are with me”
She wondered where Senator Ogbuoji got his recent confidence from knowing that his unpopularity in the State is very pronounced and worsened by his eight years unproductive stay in the Upper chamber of the Legislative arm of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that was a complete disaster without any motion or bill to his credit.
Not minding all the political offices that Senator Ogbuoji have occupied, he can’t boast of any achievement in his constituency or in any way he has impacted on the lives of his constituents, one wonders how such an unserious candidate can defeat Apostle David Nweze Umahi who has redefined governance and made the State a reference point for other Governors in Nigeria in terms of provisions of dividends of democracy and practical infrastructural development and emancipation of our people.
According to Ada Ebonyi, Senator Ogbuoji went further to state that, “Going by the indices in the state at the moment, the margin of defeat is going to be 60/40 in favour of the APC as incumbency factor will not play any role in the election like it did in the 2015 elections and that the Ebonyi rice they are boasting of is actually rice coming from Kebbi State that is re-bagged in Abakaliki”.
This assertion alone according to Lady Eze only demonstrates that Senator Ogbuoji needs serious immediate medical attention. This type of statement coming from a man dreaming of governing Ebonyi State not acknowledging the agricultural feats of Governor Umahi attested by the both Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh including the Ambassador of USA and other world leaders simply tells the world that Senator Ogbuoji is not only a joker but an unserious minded fellow who is totally ignorant of what he is happening in his own State.
“I must confess that I am at a loss on how to justify Senator Ogbuoji claim of defeating Umahi when the only road leading to his home town was only recently constructed by Governor Umahi and on daily basis he observes one of the wonders of Governor Umahi’s feats (Presco Flyover) along Abakaliki – Enugu Express road where Senator Ogbuoji takes shelter in what he calls his Campaign State Secretariat.
She noted that Senator Ogbuoji either doesn’t visit regularly or read news about Ebonyi State or failed to appreciate the feats of Governor Umahi or even read some of the astounding achievements acknowledged by both world and National leaders including the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Gen. Muhammad Buhari, who is the leader of APC who attested to the fact that His Excellency Engr. Chief Dave Nweze Umahi has performed exceptionally well, when he visited Ebonyi State or he is just trying to be mischievous..
Monica who is also the Technical Adviser (TA) on Media to Governor Umahi boasted that Senator Ogbuorji not minding his demonstration of ungratefulness will not secure up to ten percent (10%) of the total votes to be casted on March 2nd, 2019 and will be shamefully disgraced even in his community.
Let me in cncclusion urge all the good people of Ebonyi State to continue to rally round Governor Umahi in appreciation of his commitment towards building the Ebonyi of our common dream.
