Umahi Reconciles With Estranged Major Political Ally

Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi on Sunday evening
reconciled with his estranged major political ally in
the state, Chief Julius Amah-Orji, popularly known
as ‘Ochiliozuo’ (He who caters for the people en
masse). David Umahi Newsmen report that the relationship between the
duo cracked when Umahi appointed Amah-Oji’s
main political foe in Afikpo South Local
Government Area, Chief Eni Uduma, as the
Caretaker chairman of the council. The final nail was driven into the coffin when the
governor ensured that Uduma emerged as the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the
council for the forthcoming council polls in the
state, a situation that infuriated Amah-Orji. The reconciliation was made when Umahi led
members of the State Executive Council, state
Elders Council and members of the House of
Assembly, among other political stakeholders, to
an Easter visit on Amah-Orji at his country home
in Nguzu-Edda community.
