People I Helped Win Elections Now Avoid Me- Umahi

The Minister of Works, David Umahi, has said that most people he helped to power during the 2023 general elections now avoid him.

Umahi said this in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State on Thursday while speaking with newsmen.

The minister said that even National Assembly members whom he helped to power were among those who now avoid him, adding that he was not disturbed by their behaviour.

“It is only Chief Onyekachi Nwebonyi who will openly acknowledge that I am his father and boss.

“The others feel that by doing so, the state governor, my successor, will be angry with them. The governor cannot do that because he too openly acknowledges that I was instrumental to his emergence,” he said.

Umahi said that the development made him stop having political godsons but has opted for political friends.
