Failed presidential attempt God’s will – Umahi

Failed presidential attempt God's will - Umahi

Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has attributed his failed attempt to emerge as the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress to the will of God.

The Ebonyi governor said this during an interview on Arise Television on Friday morning.

Umahi contested the APC presidential primary election which eventually saw the emergence of former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the ruling party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

The governor said that he would not disclose some things until the campaign begins on September 28, adding that he swore an oath of allegiance to his party and he would abide by it.

“What happened to me at the APC primary election is the will of God. I swore an oath of allegiance to my party in APC and won’t say some things because the campaign has not started,” Umahi said.

The governor was asked why he is not supporting the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi who is a Nigerian of Igbo extraction, despite his (Umahi) agitation for the Igbo presidency.

Umahi said, “No comment. I have answered your question and I answered you that when campaigns start we will be answering questions like this because as a man who wants to uphold the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I should just do that which is very important.”
