‘This Airport, I am building it without measure, the Federal Ministry of Aviation came here and said that it is the most beautiful and biggest in entire Africa.

Governor Umahi appealed to the people of Ezza to support the candidature of Rt. Hon Francis Nwifuru for the governorship position of the state, adding that by so doing, the people of Ezza clan would enjoy the support of other clans at their time.
‘Ezza people are very intelligent and enterprising, match Ezza people against any other clan, they may not match Ezza people.
‘Ezza will never make themselves Governor, we must work in alliance, be strategic, be wise, I stand for Justice, equity and fairness, if you don’t want to vote for Nwifuru, reduce the altercations.
‘I am not asking you to drop your son, I am not God but I can tell you that your son will not win. I am not angry that the South East voted for Obi. I am not angry because through Obi we have made a statement,’ he stated.
