Ebonyi South Senator, Dave Umahi, has said President Bola Tinubu was solely responsible for his nomination as a minister from his state.
Umahi promised to work assiduously in justifying the confidence reposed in him, adding that he had no inkling on the ministry to superintendent, NAN reports.
He spoke in Abakaliki while addressing journalists after he was received by Governor Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi State.
The former governor said he owed profound appreciation to President Tinubu for “fulfiling his promise during the trying period”.
According to Umahi: “My governor (Nwifuru) should be happy because he wished for it.
“I will work with the president to ensure that all promises he made are kept.
“I cannot determine the particular ministry to head but I will justify the Ebonyi character of resourcefulness and exceptionality.”
