The Prelate of Methodist Church, Nigeria, Dr. Samuel Uche, has disclosed that Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State is tailor-made to be Nigeria’s next president.

Uche disclosed this on Tuesday in Abakaliki during a courtesy visit to Umahi.

The prelate said the message was passed through his bishops, adding that one of those governors he instructed his members to return was Umahi.

“What I have seen in Ebonyi is beyond expectation, as the governor is an uncommon transformer who has achieved much with the available meagre resources.

“I am among the South-East caucus and if we want to project anybody for the president from the zone, Umahi will be the one.

“We should project ourselves as Igbo. Although I will not mention names, there are governors we are ashamed to say come from Igbo Land.

“I am a core Igbo man and I am ready to defend their cause always and condemn issues of marginalisation and stigmatisation against them because not every Igbo man is bad.

“We have respectable Igbo citizens and if the Federal Government wants peace and progress of the country, Igbo should be brought to the forefront of government,” he said.

The cleric noted that he was the first Igbo man to occupy the position of the head of Methodist Church in Nigeria, 175 years after the establishment of the church.

“We are in Ebonyi on an apostolic visit to the grassroots to see our members and empower them, the affluent, the not too affluent and the less-privileged, among others.

“We will also pray for them to have divine touch in their lives for the desired peace, progress and spiritual uplift,” he said.

Umahi, who was represented by his deputy, Dr. Kelechi Igwe, thanked the Prelate for the visit, noting that the state was privileged to have him.

“I will say that if you hadn’t the call of God, then you have the call of most of us in this temple of politicking.

“I am, however, happy that you are deploying the divine call effectively in propagating the gospel, as no one will listen to you without being convinced about what you believe in,” he said.
