Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has reacted to the story spreading like wild harmattan fire that former Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim gave him N5 billion to prosecute his governorship election in 2015.
Umahi said; “I was a deputy Governor, somebody occupying the highest position from the Southeast (referring to Anyim) went and arranged for a N5bn naira loan for me to prosecute the presidential election for his government. I had to sell many of my properties to pay back that money.”
“Former Governor Martin Elechi was also fought by the same people fighting me. All these people that came together to fight me, they collect contracts, they collect monthly pay, they collect vehicles. And when they are asked to bring people that worked for us, they will bring their wives, children and relations.”
“Now, they are dressing words for us. We are in chapter one, in Chapter two, I will publish all that I have done for the leaders of this state.”
