The immediate past Governor of Ebonyi State, Sen. David Umahi has declared that he is happy that his successor, Governor Francis Nwifuru, still honours him after leaving office unlike what it happening other states. 

Umahi made this assertion this while speaking with newsmen after being conferred with an honorary doctorate degree by the Ebonyi State University on Saturday in Abakaliki.

Umahi who currently serves as Nigeria’s Minister of Works pointed out that it was not common to hand over to a successor and still be continually honored by him.

That is the handwork of God and I am grateful to him and the governor.

“Governors and their predecessors are fighting in many states, but in Ebonyi, we are always celebrating.

“This is the mercy of God and the wisdom bestowed on the governor,” he said.

The minister commended Nwifuru for sowing the seed of peace in the state and assured that such would be sustained.

You can see that the state is on steady rise and what I could not finish as David he is doing as Solomon.

“He is my son in whom I am well pleased”, he submitted.

Umahi thanked the university  for honouring him and others, and pledged to continue contributing to its development.

I commend the Vice -Chancellor and management for the amazing feats recorded by the institution ; we all are proud to have a university with such records.

“The job is easy when you are not the one doing it, and I thank the state governor for his great works in the university.

“I will consult with my fellow awardees and we would definitely offer huge support to the university, he said.
