Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has been in the news lately especially since the news of his defection to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) got to the public domain, its been from one accusation to another.
But this time, the governor has taken a step in the right direction by realising that no Nation can move forward without peace and tranquillity.
The Governor on Monday tendered his unreserved apology to the former secretary to the Government Of Federation, Senator Anyim Pius , and the former governor of the state Dr Sam Egwu and other NASS members whom he called out for trying to Destabilise the Unity in the state.
Chief Umahi while addressing APC supporters and stakeholders of the state at the grand opening of NLC, NECA, TUC, FMBN housing scheme that took place at Uburu, a community in Ohozoara LGA of Ebonyi State.
These were his exact words :
“Let me publicly say it here, that I have directed that nobody should abuse anybody again even if I’m abused, it goes with the job. Do not respond to them.
“I am the father of the state. And I should be ashamed of myself if the state of Ebonyi is allowed to go into bitterness and into disunity.
“I have decided to move forward. I have decided to forgive all and at the cost of this, those who may have been hurt because I take responsibility for the actions of all my government officials. And for all my supporters.
“I offer apologies to them. I am not going to sit on the judgment with anybody. These apologies and forgiveness should be enough to settle all bad bloods. And I have no regrets for that. God directed me to do this. And I thank all our leaders who have intervened.
“I thank the Catholic Bishop Nnachi Okoro, I thank CAN people led by the chairman Rev. Dr Abraham Nwali, I thank the founding fathers, I thank the Ohanaeze leadership led by Chief Nnia Nwodo, Uchenna Madu and all the leaders of the south east.
“Never again shall we respond to any attack against our government. It is not necessary, but facts speak for itself,” The governor stated.
