The Founder and President of David Umahi Nweze Akubaraoha Ebonyi Transformation Agenda (DUNAETA), Monica Ada Chidinma Eze, has described the emergence of Governor David Nweze Umahi as the new Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum as the best new year gift the forum could give to the people of Ebonyi State. Miss Eze, who is also the Technical Assistant on Media to Governor Umahi, stated this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.
She congratulated Governor Umahi for emerging as the unanimous choice of South East Governors who met on Sunday in Enugu. “The unanimous selection of Governor Umahi to lead the South East Governors’ Forum did not come as a surprise considering the organisational acumen of His Excellency, his reputation as peacemaker and the wisdom with which he has governed Ebonyi since his assumption of office on may 29, 2015,” Miss Eze said.
The DUNAETA President described Umahi’s election as a good omen for the people of Ebonyi State. “It is a recognition of the sagacity, prowess of Umahi and acceptable of Ebonyi State into the mainstream of the politics of South East,” she stated.
Miss Eze, who recently underwent a major surgery in a private hospital in Enugu, thanked Governor Umahi for his invaluable support and assistance that enabled her to come out of it alive. “God,” she said, “has a way of rewarding good-hearted people like Governor Umahi. The news of his election is no doubt the greatest tonic that I need to fully and swiftly recover, as I am very eager to return to work and continue to contribute my quota towards the advancement of our dear State, Ebonyi. In this regard, I urge all Ebonyians to join hands with His Excellency to take our dear State to greater heights.”
Finally, my special thanks also go to Chief Austin Umahi the PDP South East National Vice Chairman, my auntie, Her Excellency, Chief Rachael Umahi the Founder of Family Succour & Upliftment Foundation Programme and wife to Governor Umahi, my special friend and brother, Onyeabor Ngene, SA on Special Duties to Governor Umahi for proving that under Governor Umahi we all are one united and virile family.
I thank my Pastor, Rev. Mrs. Miriam Ukeni, my colleagues, brother and sisters for all their supports, prayers during my surgery. My immediate boss, Emmanuel Anya, CPS to Governor Umahi whose calls almost on daily basis was a motivating force and my mother, Evangelist Henrietta Eze who stood by me throughout my stay in the hospital. God will surely bless you all as I have dedicated my life to assist Governor Umahi towards making the difference in governance in Ebonyi State.
