FCT, Abuja - Nigeria's Minister of Works, David Umahi, has urged supporters of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) to refrain from relentless battle with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
As reported by Vanguard, Umahi stated this in Abuja on Tuesday, September 26, while unveiling his ministry's policy direction.
Umahi stated that the demand for Tinubu's Chicago State University (CSU) academic records was unnecessary, judging that his records as a public official stand him out among his peers.

“This (President Bola Tinubu) is a man who is the answer to the prayers of Nigerians to God.
“This is a man who has passed through all the stages… look at his appointments in the FCT, Works, Finance and all others. This President is the last hope for this country, his renewed hope agenda needs the support of all of us.
“All those ‘Atikulated and Obidients’, let them bring their (principals) who filed WAEC certificates; what did they score? They are challenging someone who is an ‘A’ student.”
Meanwhile, Umahi expressed his disappointment with the State Controllers of Works, alleging that they had failed to live up to the task given to them as the developers of their various states.
Umahi, however, hailed the director of the southwest zone for their good works as he urged others to emulate their accomplishment or risk losing their positions.
