Ebonyi state governor, David Umahi of Ebonyi has denied reports that South East Governors influence results to help President Muhammadu Buhari achieve 25 per cent of votes in states in the zone.
Umahi made this assertion on Monday in Abakaliki while addressing the media pointing that such reports were unfounded and blamed it on fake news circulating the social media space.
He said, “The fact is that the president remains the boss of all governors and any reasonable governor must respect the president, party differences apart.
“You gain nothing by castigating him and such castigation does not stop him from being the president. “You should rather make him your friend and see how you can get something for your people.
“The Bible tells us that when the ways of a man is pleasing unto God, it keeps his enemies to be at peace with him.”
The governor noted that those who lived for themselves end up heating the system as they collected their salaries at the end of the month, fed freely among others.
“I am in a hurry to change the story, narratives of Ebonyi people so whatever vehicle of peace that I need to join to achieve this, I will join.
“Our people are good in social media but will never go to get their voter cards and will be announcing results,” he said.
