Member representing Ikwo/ Ezza South Federal Constituency in the National Assembly Hon. Comrade Chinedu Ogah, OON, has declared Governor Dave Umahi the Candidate to beat in the 2003 presidential race.
In a statement made available to EverydayNews Ogah congratulated his governor for the bold step to declare for the seat of President.
Speaking on the heels of Tuesday visit to Aso Rock where the governor formally informed President Buhari of his ambition, Oga said it is a welcome development.
“I salute my governor’s courage and assure him of my readiness to showcase him (governor Umahi) to the world, in view of unprecedented achievement as the Chief security officer of the state (Ebonyi).
“Our governor is clearly the best in the country in terms of performance. He has set a record that will be difficult to erase and it is an opportunity for Nigeria to have a taste of the good governance he has demonstrated in Ebonyi.
“He is a good market and I am proud to identify with the project.
“Your Excellency sir, you have thrown the ball on the soccer field, while we the game players will leave no stone unturned to making sure your ambition is realized.”
