Ebonyi State Governor, Dr. Dave Umahi has openly stated that he would no support an Igbo extraction for president in the forthcoming general elections in 2023.
He said the gang up in the East was becoming worrisome and had not in any way helped them as a tribe, so why should he now support anyone from the East contesting to be President.
The Ebonyi State Governor that has been generally rated as the most performed Governor in Nigeria lamented that he put in his best during the APC Party Primary, but what he got in return was betrayal despite being the most qualified among all the aspirants.
According to Umahi “I have no singular reason to support anyone from the Eastern region to become the President of this country because we pretend a lot.
“The gang up in the East is becoming worrisome and has not in any way helped us as a tribe. Tell me why I should support anyone from the East contesting to be President.
“During the APC Party Primary, i put in my best but what did I get in return betrayal. Among all the aspirants, I am the most qualified but they ganged up against that mandate and turn around now to ask me to support an Igbo Presidency.
“I have said it countless times that Peter Obi is going nowhere and Ebonyi people are not going to vote him. Our vote belongs to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Ohanaeze now have voice to shout support Igbo Presidency but they lost their voice when injustice and saboteur was the order of the day during our party primary election.
“I wish to reaffirm my stand that our vote belongs to the APC Candidate and nobody from Ebonyi is going to vote for Labour Party. I have said it earlier and I am still saying it again.” ~ Dave Umahi stated
