Umahi boasted that his work can clearly speak for him as a legitimate aspirant to clinch the presidential ticket of the APC.
“Nigerians are very tired of political promises. They want to see evidence of what you have done. I have evidence of what I have done and I believe that what I have done could be replicated at the national level.”
Buhari has tackled insecurity well – Umahi
Umahi further added that the administration of President Buhari has tackled the incessant cases of insecurity well over the years.
He stated that Buhari’s presence as president was a prime factor that has helped subside the insecurity stating that it would have worsened if he was not in power.
“The security situation in the country, I have always told people that if we didn’t have the kind of President we have that is very humane and not vindictive, nobody knows where Nigeria would have been by now,” he restated.
“So, he has helped us tremendously in the security of the South-East. This thing started as a joke and today it is quite a big issue.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians in their numbers have continued to criticise the country under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.

As many people continue to complain about the situation of the country, the incessant killings, economic down-turn and many more should be addressed by the president.
