The former Anambra state governor stated that the funds could be put to better use if channelled into the rehabilitation of wrecked roads across the country.

Reacting, Umahi, said Obi failed to advocate for the people even after leading them into difficulties.

Vanguard newspaper noted Umahi’s stance.

The minister said:

“When you condemn people, you bring judgment upon yourself. And that is what he (Obi) has done. And I think he’s inciting some of the south-east people that are not well informed. He is inciting them. And gets them into trouble. And he doesn’t go to fight for them. Wisdom is a defence. And I want our people to have wisdom because I am involved.”
