Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as ‘Egypt’ and there is no chance of his ever returning to the fold of Nigeria’s main opposition party
Against the backdrop of rumours that he is hitching to embrace the PDP again ahead of the 2023 general elections, Governor Umahi said; “nothing can take me back to Egypt, called PDP.”
Speaking during the 2021 Special Thanksgiving Service of Government House Chapel in Abakaliki on Sunday, the governor dismissed the return to PDP speculations, saying; “With all these enormous achievements I have made under the All Progressive Congress (APC), what will make me to go back to Egypt, called PDP?
“For that, I pray that God will never forgive the person who initiated the fake news that I have plans to go back to PDP”
The Governor said the Thanksgiving service was an appreciation to God Almighty for His mighty and marvellous works, noting that it was good to give thanks to God as state and country at large.
According to him; “It’s good to be grateful to God for His blessings to us as state and the country at large. As a state, we have come first in several ways and we give Him the praises. Learn how to give a good gift to God and it is by thanksgiving that we can be blessed.”
In her message, Pastor Mrs Eunice Oyeyemi of Christ Embassy Church, Government House Chapel, Abakaliki, said Ebonyi state was able to achieve all the existing developments because of God’s love and mercies.
Oyeyemi, who described Governor Umahi as a “visionary and transformation leader”, said; “Today, Sunday is a special day for thanksgiving for the government and everyone in the state.”
“We are thanking God for peace, safety, and calmness, we have enjoyed in spite of challenges. People should always be grateful and thankful to God and be Prayerful for the leaders,” Oyeyemi said.
