2023: I’m not opposed to Obi’s presidential ambition – Umahi backtracks

The Ebonyi governor said contrary to reports, he is not against the ambition of the Labour Party presidential candidate.

Umahi, a member of the All Progressives Congress and Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum had few days ago, said his state will not follow any other political agenda in the 2023 elections aside from voting for his party.

The talk was assumed by many to be a jab at Mr Obi, a former governor of Anambra, and had generated backlash on social media.

But backtracking in a statement by Uchenna Orji, the information commissioner in Ebonyi, the governor said, “Umahi never said that Obi was going nowhere and that he (Umahi) does not believe in the nation’s president of Igbo extraction.

“The governor is a member of the All Progressives Congress and shall support the party in all their state and national elections as a good party man.

“He believes that political party members should defend their parties during elections and people will freely vote for candidates of their choice,” the statement added
