Abakaliki, Ebonyi state - Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state has said God is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and directs the affairs of the party.
He made the statement on Monday, August 2, during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
The governor stated the chances of the southeast region producing Nigeria’s President under his APC would be determined by God.
''He is. He directs our affairs. He gives breath to every man so power belongs to God. Whatever thing we wish will come through only through God. If God says yes, no one can say no.”
