Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has reiterated that God should give Nigeria another leader who has a good heart like President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that Umahi had said that it is only God who can decide who will replace President Buhari in 2023, adding that the Southeast needs the anointing of God to produce a president in 2023.
Reacting, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said even President Buhari knows better that God won’t allow another person like him to lead the nation come 2023.
Speaking with reporters in Abuja on Friday, Ebonyi State Commissioner of Information and State Orientation, Uchenna Orji, said the governor has no regret praying for another president like Buhari in 2023.
He stated that President Buhari’s mature disposition to economic issues and his handling of insecurity explains why Nigeria should pray for a leader like him.
He said: “So I think Governor Dave Umahi is right in all ramifications because if you see the level of agitations, that is tribal-based, lots of sentiments, religious sentiments, tribal sentiments, ethnic sentiments and people rising and being powered by the social media, I will say that without a man of matured temperament like the president, the situation would have been worse.
“Before he came on board, the bandits were almost overwhelming the capital city, but with this administration, we have not seen much of the activities of banditry by these criminal elements in the capital city. So it is a plus to him.
“This insecurity is not the problem of the present government; it is of the past administration and the stakeholders of the present. Not only those in government but also those outside the corridors of power.”
