Buhari loves me and I love him too, says Governor Umahi



Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi who has stated that he loves President Muhammadu Buhari.

The recent defectee to the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), made this known while speaking in his hometown at Uburu community, Ohaozara LGA on Monday.

Umahi, who is also chairman of the South-east governors forum, said that the President’s love for Ebonyi would have been enough reason for him to defect.

He said; ”You can say anything you want to say but the president loves me and I love him also.

“I do not know how this love happened, but you should realise that grace is always upon the house of David.”

Umahi who also admitted to supporting Buhari during the 2019 general election, even as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, said his former party, the PDP, should not waste time in accusing him of giving the president 25 percent votes during the election.

“I preached it in the entire south east zone of the country, that the person who supports us is whom we will support.

“I have decided to move forward. I have decided to forgive all and at the cost of this, those who may have been hurt because I take responsibility for the actions of all my government officials. And for all my supporters.”

“I offer apologies to them. I am not going to sit on the judgment with anybody. These apologies and forgiveness should be enough to settle all bad bloods. And I have no regrets for that. God directed me to do this. And I thank all our leaders who have intervened,” the governor said.
