EBONYI STATE (NIGERIA) IS A YOUNG STATE AND NEEDS A GOVERNOR THAT IS NOT CORRUPT, DAVID UMAHI HAS CORRUPTION IN HIS SYSTEM AND ALSO LACKS THE ABILITY TO GOVERN THE STATE NICELY FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE PEOPLE OF EBONYI STATE.

David Umahi coming to power as the governor of Ebonyi state was a do or die affair which we all know. Now that he is in power, instead of doing the right thing for the people of Ebonyi state, he allegedly start looting from the state treasury. His wrong activities started when he was the deputy governor of Ebonyi state under the leadership of Chief Martin Elechi. He allegedly teamed up with some few terrible individuals in the state to cause distractions here and there. All the promises he made during his campaign of 2015 governorship election were never met. The past governor, Chief Martin Elechi was forced by the Labour Union in the state to increased workers’ salaries by 50% which he implemented before leaving office, this is a plus to the former governor Martin Elechi. Instead of keeping that pay structure going on in the state, governor David Umahi who promised Ebonyi state workers 100% pay increase during his political campaign has manipulated the whole system to favour his secret agenda. When the workers demanded that the previous 50% increase they were getting when the former governor Martin Elechi was there be restored back to them, what he (governor David Umahi) did was to dissolve the organized labour Union in Ebonyi state, put them in disarray and appointed one Mr. Uneke to head the new Labour Congress he formed after dissolving the organized labour Union in the state. Governor David Umahi used the “yes type of men” to implement the old scale payment method, meaning that both the 50% increment the former governor Martin Elechi was paying the workers in Ebonyi state before leaving office and the 100% increment David Umahi promised the workers during his 2015 campaign are no longer in existence in Ebonyi state.
Again, when the former governor, Martin Elechi was in power, Ebonyi state monthly allocation from the federation account was about two billion Naira and Martin Elechi never owe workers their salaries and some projects were carried out in the state. The former governor of Ebonyi state, Martin Elechi was spending about 800 million naira monthly for the salaries of both civil and public servants in the state. Now David Umahi collects over four billion Naira monthly and there is nothing to show for it, that means something is wrong somewhere, corruption. Viewers Corner News learned that more than half of this money is allegedly being used for his private investments, leaving the Ebonyi state people to suffer. Poverty is visible everywhere in Ebonyi state, David Umahi does not care about the welfare of Ebonyi state people.
Ebonyi state also benefited from the federal government bailout fund of about 4.063 billion naira which he (David Umahi) is not supposed to collect because his predecessor, Chief Martin Elechi did not owe Ebonyi state workers any salary before leaving office. So the question is what has governor David Umahi done with what he has collected so far? Just nothing to show for it instead the money went the usual way (corruption). The worst part of the situation is that if you question the governor’s wrongdoing in the state, he either sacks you, seize your property or transfer you to a remote village where you will regret ever questioning him. This is not democracy at all. Viewers Corner News also found out that governor David Umahi built hotels in Portharcourt, Abakaliki and his home town Uburu (Ohaozara local government area), aside the mansions he built including the one at Adamu Aliero street, Maitama in Abuja while the people of Ebonyi state are dying of hunger. This is corruption at the highest level, this is not fair at all.
We (Viewers Corner News and the Advisory team) are appealing that governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state should change his style of leadership and work for the best interest of the people of the state. Viewers Corner News care so much about the welfare of the people of Ebonyi state, therefore we are advising that the monthly allocation David Umahi collects from the federal government be used properly to create jobs and other good infrastructural facilities which will better the lives of the people of Ebonyi state. Viewers Corner News is reminding our readers both in Nigeria and around the world to please remove sentiments in this issue and examine carefully what David Umahi is doing in Ebonyi state. Governor David Umahi should also realize that he is not the only person in the state and without the support of the majority of the Ebonyi state people, he would not get the mandate to be in that government house despite all the election manipulations. Therefore, he should carry Ebonyi state people along because people are suffering in that state so much. A governor of any state carrying his people along in his state is the beauty of a democratic system of government.
Again, we (Viewers Corner News and the advisory team) are concerned citizens of this world and would continue to advise and appeal for good governance everywhere in the world.
