- Says politicians are the most ungrateful people to God
The Executive governor of Ebonyi State David Umahi says the next state governor in 2023 will come from God.
Umahi says “intense prayers” will be offered to God to choose his successor.
The governor said, “The next crop of leaders will come from God in this state and intense prayers will be carried out on this in all the local government areas. It is going to be a battle because the soul of this state is at stake. The light has come in Ebonyi state and nobody can quench the light.”
He made the statement during a thanksgiving service in Abakaliki, the state capital.
He also said he will offer special prayers to disgrace politicians patronizing occult groups and herbalists ahead of the next governorship election.
“And all those people who are going to occultists or herbalists on this, as far as I came in the name of the Lord they will all be disgraced,” the governor said.
Umahi stated that those who shun state functions for events outside the state in a bid to influence the leadership will not succeed.
“A lot of our people, when there is programme here they will not come but when there is programme outside the state, they will go there believing that the leadership of this state can be influenced from outside,” he said.
“We have come of age, and nobody can influence the elective or appointive positions in this state from outside the state. It is not possible.
The governor who took it all out on his colleagues said “politicians are the most ungrateful people to God”
Adding that “when God has delivered you, the next move is to start looking for another post, it’s a very terrible thing.”
