2023 Presidency: Umahi Advocates For Retirement Age For Politicians

The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, on Monday said politicians in the country should have retirement age and not chase after money till the end of their journey in life.

Umahi said this while answering questions during an interview on Channels TV.

He urged political office holders to begin to engage their children, and let them know the true meaning of life.

The All Progressives Congress chieftain said, “In this country, I find it very funny for people at a certain age that are still fighting so hard for money. I thought that at a certain age, we should be making efforts to reconcile with God and be grateful to him for the opportunity given to us.

“So, it is important that we begin to engage and say, look, even if you are successful and your children are not successful, then you are not successful. We must let people know the true meaning of life; nobody goes to the grave with this money but it is your legacy that will speak for you, speak for your children and your generation.

“This is the kind of engagement that we need to do so that people will understand that everything is not about money and that every position was given to us by God as leaders, God will ask us for accountability for what we did with such positions.”

The Ebonyi State Governor when asked to speak on people he said are concerned about money, said, “What I mean is that in this country, there is no age limit by which we can say we have retired, we tend to be pursuing money till the end of our stay on earth in Nigeria.

“I’m not just talking about political leadership, generally, at a certain age in your life, you should be able to say I need to retire and give opportunities to your children. It cuts across all areas of life.”

Umahi when asked if he knows any presidential aspirant who should retire and allow the “children” to take over, he said, “Not in my mind at all.”
