IPOB Can’t Stop Buhari From Coming To Ebonyi – Umahi

Following IPOB’s threat to lock down the South East region, if President Muhammadu Buhari’s plan to visit Ebonyi state, the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has reportedly lashed out at IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful, adding that he was inconsequential.

The governor made this known during the State’s annual Thanksgiving Service at the Government House Chapel, Abakaliki, on Sunday.

According to him, “I saw where one misguided element that calls himself IPOB, said Mr President is not welcomed in Ebonyi. He is inconsequential and I want you to put it on social media.”

Umahi stated that, “I was in Paris and I told Mr President that the leaders of the South-East would want to visit him over the issue of peace in the South-East, and I appeal to him to postpone the visit till early next year.”

He added that, “But I didn’t want to tell our people, because I was urging them to keep pushing our projects as if the President was going to come this year. And I’m not sure up to three or four people knew this; so, I kept it to myself.”

He made it known that, “So, Mr. President will come when we want him to come. That IPOB guy is an inconsequential human being. If he is serious, let him hit the wall to Ebonyi State and let him see, if he would find feet to go back.”

He maintained that, “Somebody will sit down somewhere and be talking rubbish and they will be misguiding our children to go and be killed; but, himself will not be at the war front.”

Be noted that, “Any of them that will talk rubbish about security in South-East, should come and lead the war. And I will also lead the war for Ebonyi State. And like David, we will always kill Goliath. When they talk rubbish, just ignore them. This land belongs to God.”
