It is good to depend on God, when you help the poor, when we trust God, when we put our faith in God, then we have less time for distractions.”
He attributed the successes of his administration to the directives of God and charged other leaders to hold on to God to be successful in their leadership.
“Let me first start by thanking my creator for this wonderful opportunity, so I thank God so much for his mercies and grace.
“I can testify that Prayer is the key to our successes, and I want to thank CAN, the Divine Mandate Pastors and my Pastor for the solidarity. From this altar, my success came forth.
“What is happening in Ebonyi State is not by the power of man but the power of God. If you want to manipulate me, you have to manipulate God first because I am protected by him.”
He said there will be no political squabbles of any kind “If I call all the leaders of the state to bring in a successor, there will be no fight, but there will be a fight if I want someone to succeed me singlehandedly, that’s when there will be a fight.
Umahi used the opportunity of the thanksgiving to reaffirm the commitment of his administration to complete all ongoing projects and even initiate new ones before his Leadership draws to a close in 2023.
“We are committed to completing all our ongoing projects especially the airport, the Ring Road, the stadium, we must complete the stadium and do two more flyovers, one at Ogbe Hausa, one at Afikpo and by 2022, we will do more Empowerment in addition to what we are doing already.”

Remember that the position you occupy today, you did not occupy it yesterday and you will not be there forever, so use your office to create a better tomorrow, remember that whatever we do today, our children’s children will pay for it, if you are blessed, you are supposed to be a blessing to people around you.”
