Dave Umahi and Buhari

Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has declared interest to contest in the 2023 presidential election.

The governor today met with President Muhammadu Buhari to apprise him of his ambition.

This is coming barely 24 hours after former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, declared his ambition to contest for the presidential ticket of the All Progressive Congress (APC). 

Emerging from the president’s office at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Tuesday, he confirmed that he discussed the issue with the president who told him to go and seek the support of the people.

He said he was not fazed by Tinubu’s entry into the race as he believes that the contest is not about might.

Umahi, who left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC as he believed that the former ruling party was not ready to cede the 2023 ticket to the southeast, said he stands a chance if the APC throws the ticket open.

He said if he gets the opportunity, his presidency will replicate his effort in Ebonyi state at the national level, saying that he has a lot to show in running governance as a business.
