1. On assumption of office as the Governor of Ebonyi State after a roughened, toughened and frightening battle which recorded winners and losers, Gov. David Nweze Umahi decided to forgive, welcome and progress by moving Ebonyi State forward with all men, both losers and winners thereby running an all-inclusive government where no discrimination exists.

2. Prof. Benard Odoh contested the position of Ebonyi Central Senatorial seat under APGA and lost in the 2015 general elections.

3. Gov. Umahi's in the spirit of oneness, love and progress of Ebonyi State appointed him (Prof. Odoh) as the SSG of the state, this is an appointment which came with mixed feelings from both within the political space and the general public as his trust has always been in doubt because he was coming from a party(APGA) without structure in the state.

4. The appointment of Benard Odoh by Gov. Umahi was in good faith as he used it to prove to the general public that he loves them unconditionally.

5. The resignation of Odoh from Ebonyi State Government never came as surprise as we all know that the fear of one's shadow is the beginning of his downfall. Probably, Odoh has been waiting for 2019 election to draw near before his exit from the seat as SSG to enable him run for his choice position.

6. I wonder why Prof. Odoh just discovered that Governor has ears which cannot be blocked by human except God. According to him, he wrote, "Sir, you were inundated with all kinds of non-existing stories by those who felt injured by my appointment and by those who were envious of my early attainment in life..." I ask, so he (The Governor) is being fed with stories(possible, the bad stories) about you (Prof. Odoh) and he never sacked nor suspended you?
- The governor allowed him in such a sensitive position till date with trust.
- Odoh never complained for 3 years of actively working with the governor without squabbles.

7. I think the governor has achieved his objective of appointing him into the government which is nothing except to bring everybody on board.

8. Prof. Odoh resigned speedily before a formal termination of his job as members of EXCO were on his neck over an allegation which will be made public later.

-Prof. Odoh should be grateful and appreciate the opportunity given to him by Gov. Umahi, he should be grateful for the leader we have in Ebonyi State who doesn't discriminate, he should have resigned honorably and proceed for his senatorial ambition without cooking up stories against the government just to make cheap political point.

-Prof. Odoh has made it public that he is having issues with trust as he neither trust himself nor anyone around him.
