Thanking Ebonyians for their show of love and solidarity to him while in isolation, he stated that it was good for someone to step aside sometimes in order to ascertain the degree of love the people have for him.
Umahi explained: “While I was in isolation I was never sick…
“One of the things that God told me in isolation is that no one will die any more from COVID-19 in Ebonyi state.
“So all we have to do is to be careful, not to be afraid of it… “Our treatment is the most effective in Nigeria…”
