Ohanaeze Ndigbo tips Umahi for Senate President
By KENNETH ONYEKWERE, ABAKILIKI
Apex Igbo Socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has tipped Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state for Senate President of the 10th Senate session.
Ohanaeze said that Umahi has demonstrated democratic tolerance without penchant for sectional politics.
In a statement issued on Sunday by Ohanaeze Secretary-General, Mazi Okechuwu Isiguzoro stated that it’s obviously fair that the position of the Senate president should come from the South-East geo-political zone.
“Beyond the consideration of the South-East for the position, the document stated that more important is the choice of the occupant of the office, posited that Nigeria currently needs politicians with a spread of acceptance and without bias of religion, ethnicity.
“Umahi fits in this. When some politicians here were pursuing selfish interests, Umahi who is currently the Senator-elect for Ebonyi South senatorial zone took his people into the mainstream of Nigerian politics, just like he saw tomorrow.

According to the statement, Umahi has made friends across the divide and has demonstrated tolerance for all sections and strata that qualified him most fitted for the cap.
“For the interest of unity, for the gains of Umahi’s proven commitment to one Nigeria, infrastructure and human development, also for the Igbo interest and need to galvanize support for our long-sought chance to have one of us strive to the presidency in the near future, we seek the support of all to enthrone Umahi as the next Senate President”.
The group noted that every well-meaning rule is made for the general good, saying that anything against the genuine request would be bent to achieve the best for the time.
