Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has formally informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his 2023 Presidential Ambition on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
This is coming barely 24 hours after APC National Leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu similarly told the President of his ambition to contest for the party’s Presidential Ticket.
Fielding questions from State House Correspondents after a meeting with Buhari in his office in Abuja, the Governor said the President advised him to consult widely.
Dave Umahi said he was not perturbed by Tinubu’s entry into the race, pointing out that the contest is not about might.
Umahi said if he gets the opportunity, his Presidency would replicate the current effort in Ebonyi State at the National level, stressing that he has a lot to show in running governance as business.
The Governor said he has told President Buhari that he shall abide by without prejudice to whatever will be the decision of the Party, that if the party throws the ticket open or zoned to southern part of Nigeria, he believe that with what he had put in place in the past six years plus, that he will be running for Presidency on the platform of APC.
