I will fight whoever fights my successor – Ex-Ebonyi gov, Umahi

The Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, has vowed to fight anybody who makes trouble with his successor, the current Ebonyi State Governor, Francis Nwifuru.

Umahi, who is the immediate past governor of Ebonyi State, said this while speaking to journalists in Abakaliki, the state capital, stating that the governor deserved respect.

Umahi added that although there were usually crises between the predecessors and successors, he would not engage in such because God had blessed him.

He said that he never regretted making Nwifuru his successor, stressing that he (Nwifuru) alongside few others, stood with him during the hard decision of defecting to the All Progressive Congress, APC.

“I will fight anybody who makes trouble with the governor because he deserves our respect. I have done my bit, have left the stage and have to respect myself.

“There are always pathways to successes and failures and when you dig for someone to fail, you have already failed.

“The issue of the leaders staying together for long is not our business but I have known the governor for 16 years and will continue to support him,’’ he said.
