Ebonyi Holds A State Dinner In Honour Of Nigeria's Ambassador To The Republic Of Benin

..
. As Umahi Opposes VAT Collection By States

The Ebonyi State Government has held a State Dinner in honour of the former Chief of Army Staff and Nigeria Ambassador to the Republic of Benin, Ambassador Tukur Buratai.

IGBERE TV reports that the Dinner was held at the Banquet Hall of the Governor's Lodge, Ocho Udo Centenary City Abakaliki on Sunday.

Speaking at the dinner, Governor David Nweze Umahi thanked the visiting Ambassador for the excellent services he rendered to Nigeria and Ebonyi State which reduced incidences of insecurity during his reign as Chief of Army Staff.

"This is a man that even if he is in the battlefront and you call him on phone, he will answer you, it doesn't matter your level, so we are very proud of his service to humanity, When you have a good heart to your people, when you want to exit, God can use even your enemies to grant you a soothing exit, so I congratulate you for the selfless service you rendered to us as a Chief of Army Staff.

"Security is quite the duty of each one of us. One of the things he did for Ebonyi State is manpower development and that is by bringing the Tukur Buratai Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution as well as the Army Referral Hospital to Ebonyi State.

"Today we want to thank you very highly for this your honour and commitment to the welfare of our people.”


The Governor said Ebonyi State as usual would not subscribe to incessant calls for sit at home, insisting that any Civil Servant who absents him/herself from work on Monday and Tuesday would be sanctioned.

"Evil will continue to thrive if good people keep quiet, we must make Ebonyi State very exceptional by rising to the challenges. When we shout True Federalism, I say I agree but it should be administrative restructuring, Ebonyi State is not in support of any State collecting VAT, we are in support that FIRS should continue to collect tax and share.

"We are destroying our economy, the sit at home is not happening in South West, the North is not sitting at home, each time we sit at home, we lose over ten billion naira in our economy, so Ebonyi State will not sit at home any day, so I charge the Commissioners to go all out and ensure that Civil Servants come to work, and for the Markets, I will personally be in the Markets tomorrow, anyone who is no longer interested in owning shops can go home.”

The Governor while urging the Nation Leaders to speak up against dissenting voices that are capable of polarizing the Nation, said he is open to debate with any PDP Governor who feels he has delivered more democracy dividends to his citizens than the APC led administration in Ebonyi State.

"People are taking special interest in Ebonyi State and her Governor, positively and negatively but it is very important to be in the news than for you to say there are thirty-six states, you will name 35 and say what is the other State, we have aborted it, we are now a State to reckon with and we have no apologies.

“When I say I have no apologies, you can talk everything about me but you can not say we have not delivered and so when people open their mouths in PDP to talk about APC, they should know that I belong to APC and if they like, let PDP offer any of their best Governors to come for debate with me and I will defeat any of them, not to be talking and talking. You don't sit on people's sweat and resources and be talking nonsense.

"We have no regrets taking our people to the center. We have always played at the center, we are not playing party politics, we are playing politics that will be an advantage to our people, criticize me, no problems but we need resources, we need friendship with the center.”

Responding, the visiting Ambassador to the Republic of Benin, Ambassador Tukur Buratai commended Governor David Umahi on his infrastructural transformation of Ebonyi State.

While describing the Governor as a General in strategy and tactics, Ambassador Buratai said Governor Umahi has become a household name in Nigeria because of his ardent support to the welfare of the Army Officers.

He thanked the Governor for the warm reception offered him and lauded him for the replica of the Dubai Mall, being the Shopping Mall constructed by the Umahi administration among other landmark projects.

“Let me also say the Governor Umahi is not just a general in development but he is equally a general in Strategy and Tactics.

“Your relationship with Mr. president has worked and has brought about the needed development in Ebonyi State.

"Your Excellency you are a visionary leader and your legacies will endure till the end of time.”

Umahi and Uzodingba would realise what they have done to themselves

I can remember when Ortom used to clean Buhari's nyash very clean before but see now.

Although I know that Umahi's own asslicking is deeper but it will become gone soon.
As for Uzodingba,that one just came to become governor for only 4 years and vanish away completely forever from Biafraland

The scream of "Afonja" go don fill like 2 pages if Gov. Umahi is a Yoruba man. This same people will always tell you is the SW that is always betraying the South grin .

Buratai made Igbos dance the Python Dance, a dangerous dance that still makes IPOB members shake with fears when they hear or see the name.

Dave Umahi should be careful with his utterances just to please outsiders against his people just because of 2023.
States collection of VAT will make the Governors to sit up in their various duties.

There is a difference between a state installed Governor and a leader. Igbos know their leaders. Umahi is certainly not one of them

If the Niger Delta states & their governments, their drunk mentally lazy bandit governors, their insatiable & unrepentant greedy elders, politicians & militant leaders cornering everything meant for the people had utilized the 6 trillion naira NDDC funds, additional tens of trillions of naira from statutory allocations, 13% derivation allocations, ecological funds, Ministry of Niger Delta funds, royalties & rents etc in the past 20 years to build the economy & infrastructure of Niger Delta, they won't be today shamelessly moving in & out of courts in Nigeria over VAT from beer & Lagos will be nowhere near Delta, Rivers or Akwa Ibom in IGR.
Now, they are instigating a VAT war with FG to cover the monumental failure in delivering governance to their people & the mindless terrorism on the people of Niger Delta recently uncovered in NDDC.
If we the citizens of Niger Delta are not already doped silly by ignorant primitive contrived emotions these leeches feed us daily, we should by now be asking them questions!
We should be telling them to give account of the trillions they collected at least in the past 20 years first before talking about collecting VAT revenue.
We should be telling them to implement local government financial autonomy first before demanding for fiscal federalism.
We should be telling them to respect & not interfere in the independence of the state houses of assembly & state judiciaries which are the two organs of government empowered by the constitution to check the excesses & misappropriation of resources by the governors if we are to trust their demands for fiscal federalism.
But sadly, we are applauding the bandits called state governors & their rapacious elders, politicians & militant leaders accomplices raping us front & back as they lead us by the nose once again as always in another wild goose chase distraction from the real issues of our underdevelopment, stagnation & destitution in the midst of plenty in the Niger Delta.
A pathetic shame indeed!

Over the years on nairaland I have read many times how some Igbo internet warriors accused the other region as betrayals but like every other things they accused other regions of it's proven that igbos are quick to accuse or abuse others of the very things they practice and are guilty of.

The other day a South East governor who was represented in a meeting with his other southern counterparts to take decision on anti grazing law declared that his state will not enact an anti grazing law. Again another Igbo governor is opposing states been in charge of their vat. It's clear now that Igbos will prefer slavery to the Fulani rules than independent control of their sovereignty yet they are the loudest to cry restructuring and etc.

south east states dont want VAT for reasons I don't know.Funny enough Ebonyi has so much solid minerals, the largest in The SE/SS. Limestone, lead, gypsum,zinc ,granite

Do you know 60% of granites used in road constructions and building houses in SE/SS come from Ebonyi.Infact we go to ishiagu in Ebonyi to fetch our granites for building here in PH.

Umahi only wants to please his fulani masters and not like Ebonyi can't generate its own revenue. I even forgot about their branded rice and other agricultural exploits . Umahi you're crazy
