Speaking to journalists at his Uburu residence in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Umahi credited President Bola Tinubu for successfully addressing major issues faced by the people in the region. He specifically pointed out the resolution of constant clashes between farmers and herders as one of Tinubu's accomplishments.

Umahi asserted that the Southeast's current challenges are largely self-inflicted, identifying the activities of the "unknown but known gunmen" as the predominant issues in the region. He explained, “If you check very well, especially in the Southeast, you will know that we no longer have incessant farmers/herders clashes.”

The former governor of Ebonyi State questioned the rationale behind joining protests when the President has already addressed their primary concerns. He stated, “So, why should we join the protest when the President has solved our major problem? The problem we now have in the Southeast is self-inflicted. That is the issue of unknown but known gunmen.”

Umahi further emphasized, “If you remove the issue of unknown gunmen, the Southeast will be completely safe and farmers can work. So, we can’t go and join anybody to protest.”
