Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi on Tuesday, informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his ambition to run for the 2023 presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Umahi said this while addressing State House correspondents after a meeting with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in Abuja, on Tuesday.
The Governor had informed Buhari of his intention to contest for the 2023 presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Asked to speak on what he and the President discussed, Umahi said, “We discussed politics, the growth of our party APC in Nigeria and the South-East, and the interest of the South-East in the 2023 presidency.
He said if the APC throws its ticket to the southern part of Nigeria, his achievement in the past six years would enable him to clinch the ticket.
He added, “The President believes that anyone that wants to run for the presidency must have to consult widely and go to all the leaders. We must do everything to remove ethnicity and religion in our polity so that this country can grow.”
