Umahi Meets Buhari, Declares 2023 Presidential Ambition

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has informed President MuhammaduBuhari of his intention to contest the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress.

Umahi disclosed this after a closed-door meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor’s visit came barely 24 hours after the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, met Buhari to notify him of his intention to contest for the same APC presidential ticket.

Umahi confirmed to reporters that he discussed the issue with Buhari, who asked him to go and seek the support of the people.

On November 30, he said he did not defect to the ruling party to contest for the presidency in 2023, claiming that his decision was based on perceived injustice in the PDP.

Umahi said if given the opportunity, his Presidency will replicate his efforts in Ebonyi State at the national level, saying that he has a lot to show in running governance as a business.

The governor also said he discussed ways to resolve the South East’s security crisis through political solutions.
