The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has stated that he wants to be President of Nigeria in 2023, to continue with the vision of President Muhammadu Buhari for the country, because he is so close to the President, and understands his true desires for Nigeria,
Recall, that he declared his intention to the Press on Tuesday, after meeting with President Buhari, to officially inform him.
Speaking later on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, Governor Umahi said: “I feel within me that the country is passing through a phase, and I believe strongly that the miracles that God helped us to do in Ebonyi State, by the reason of all the successes we made in all the economic indices and all our programmes, that if given the opportunity, we can replicate it at the national level.
“This is my conviction, and that we can also build from where Mr. President would stop. I am also close to Mr. President, I know his heartbeat for the country, and I know what he desires for this country, so I think that I understand his programmes and his policies and his integrity, coupled with what we have done in Ebonyi State, and it can add and help the country.”
He added that he intends to bring a business-like spirit into governance at the Federal level, and is also canvassing for a political solution to the insecurity problems in the South-East region.
He noted that he believes that if the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, is willing and open to engagement, peace will return to the South-East for good, under his Presidency.
