I Pity Illiteracy: Umahi Blast’s Wike For Mocking Him On National Television

David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi, has tackled Nyesom Wike, Rivers governor, for saying he is behind his sacking as governor. Umahi described Wike as lacking intellectual material and as an illiterate. Umahi said this in Abuja on Wednesday after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari over his sacking as governor of Ebonyi.
STATE POST had reported how a federal high court sitting in Abuja ordered the removal of Umahi and his deputy, Eric Igwe, over their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Wike had during the inauguration of the 3.4km eastern bypass in Port Harcourt said the PDP will stop at nothing to reclaim the Ebonyi governorship seat following the defection of Umahi.
Wike went ahead to say he is involved in Umahi’s sacking from office. I am involved, PDP is behind it, we are all PDP members. me I am involved. You can’t take what is our property and say we should close our mouth, we can’t close our mouth, Wike said.
You heard him on Channels boasting that he is behind. a mere man that depends on the breath of God, I pity illiteracy, it’s a shame. You are boasting to remove another governor, what qualifies you, just because you are packing money that is public fund, not intellectual material but just packing money from public funds and you are boasting about it.
And I want to thank the PDP and even the man that boosted that he did that hatchet job. If the people that crucify Christ knew that it will bring salvation to the whole world, they wouldn’t have done that.
So the hatchet man that boasted is liken to Judas Iscariot. And so I have no worry because the Constitution is clear. I have confidence in the judiciary and so you can see I have added some weight in these few days and looking more handsome.
Asked if he and his unnamed counterpart had personal grouse aside the politics of decamping to APC, he said: Probably the difference between us will be our faith. I serve the living God and he probably a lot of alcohol. I don’t drink. So that is the differences between us otherwise he remains my friend and my brother and I have nothing against him.
When pressured to name the governor he was referring to, Umahi said: You should be the one telling me. You heard him on Channels boasting that he is behind. A mere man that depends on the breath of God. I pity illiteracy. It’s a shame. You are boosting to remove another governor.

What qualifies you just because you’re packing money that is public fund? Not intellectual material but by just packing money from public funds and you are boasting about it. Otherwise, who were you. I became a billionaire at the age of 25. I’ve worked all my life and I have asked him to come for public debates.
I do not commission 3.4 kilometer road. I commission 35 kilometer roads. I commissioned twin flyovers running to one kilometer. I commission mega projects with little resources. So, if he says he has done well and he is Mr this or that, let him come for public debate with me. Let’s start with our childhoods. So I’m not disturbed.
Asked whether his presidential ambition has died he said: It could be just your own imagination because there is no such thing. You can see us in the various media houses, you know, social media. You can see my supporters everywhere, you can see my consultation.
