The commissioner told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that ‘it was better to get to the bridge first before thinking on how to cross it’.
“What is important is that we enjoy good governance in Ebonyi but it will be better to hear from the horse’s mouth because I am not the horse” he said.
NAN reports that Sen. Julius Ucha, an APC Leader in Ebonyi on Sunday declared that Gov. Umahi is definitely on his method to be part of the party from the PDP.
Ucha, the Former Senator representing Ebonyi Central zone on the National Assembly and presently a member of the National Assembly Service Commission, disclosed this through the party’s stakeholders assembly in Abakaliki.
The former Speaker of the Ebonyi House of Assembly and an APC Gubernatorial Candidate said the matter had been concluded on the acceptable quarters and was not a joke.
“This will be certain that for the first time, APC will probably be in management of governance within the state and can make the governors of different south east states to declare for the party.
“I told President Muhammadu Buhari throughout his go to to the state in 2017 that governors are very highly effective people who couldn’t be ignored in any method.
“We should continue praying that nothing stops this move because the world’s greatest wireless connection is prayer,” he said.
He urged the party devoted to unite in actualising the target noting factionalisation will probably be detrimental to the cause.
“The battle for party management doesn’t make sense as I have been struggling since I left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP).
“The struggles normally have been in useless and I can’t proceed to battle or be fascinated about factions.
“Party faithful should also ensure they register in the forthcoming party’s registration exercise because ‘overtaking’ is allowed in party affairs,” he said.
Sen. Anthony Agbo, former Senator representing Ebonyi North zone on the National Assembly also declared that APC within the state had made a ‘big catch’ with the governor’s intending move to the party.
“This also implies that the party within the south east has made a large catch and the party in Nigeria- making presumably, the largest catch with the meant move.
“We, the APC leaders, are presently making the move public as the governor has excelled in infrastructural transformation amongst different sectors of governance.”
NAN reports that state’s political sphere has been dominated by the reports of Umahi’s defection to the APC but the governor not too long ago said that he was nonetheless a member of the PDP.
