David Nweze Umahi is a Nigerian politician who is currently serving as the Executive Governor of Ebonyi State, Nigeria.
Sequel to my previous publication on
“The Best Performing Governors In Nigeria At The Moment” based on infrastructures, which I awarded to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Governor Sanwo Olu of Lagos State, I was I informed that Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state arguably the best among all.
I had to carry out some research, and to my greatest surprise, the Executive Governor of Ebonyi state David Umahi; is indeed the best performing governor at the moment when it comes to infrastructures.
Unfortunately, I can’t list them all here, a Google search can can help.
According to Wiki, Umahi entered public service in 2007 as the acting chairman of the Ebonyi State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party.
From 2009 to 2011, he served as state chairman of the party. During that term, he served a year on the governing board of the Federal Medical Centre in Asaba as its chairman.
In 2011, Umahi became deputy governor of Ebonyi State on a ticket with the-then Governor Martin Elechi. However, in 2014, Governor Elechi supported Onyebuchi Chukwu, Minister of Health, as his successor, which Umahi stated violated an understanding that he would take that role.
Umahi went ahead to defeat Chukwu in the primaries.The remainder of Elechi’s term was chaotic, with arson hitting the House of Assembly in February 2015 and motions taken to impeach him later that month over alleged unconstitutional gross misconduct, misappropriation of funds and anti-party activities.
Umahi was elected to the role of Governor on 12 April 2015 in an election that has been challenged by the Labour Party, All Progressives Congress and All Progressives Grand Alliance on the basis of “widespread irregularities, killings, and wanton destruction of property”.
In October 2015, the legitimacy of the election was upheld by the Governorship Election Tribunal.
On the 16th day of March, 2019, David Umahi was re-elected as Governor in the Ebonyi state governorship election.
Now let’s talk about his achievements thus far. To me Richard, none of what I saw, seem to be applaudable achievements o. But you know, the country is so messed up that we celebrate and applaud every little thing done by our political leaders. In working countries, what we celebrate here, are not counted as achievements and not worth celebrating.
All the same, David Umahi of Ebonyi state is the best working governor in Nigeria at the moment.
