I Can Never Support Igbo Presidency, Let Tinubu Take It ” ~ Dave Umahi



The governor of Ebonyi state, Governor David Nweze Umahi has started he can’t support anyone else from the South East region (igbo) to become the President of Nigeria, this is a result of what transpired during the just concluded APC Presidential primary, that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerges as the party’s flag bearer.

Dave umahi who feels betrayed said he has no reason to support anyone else since he lost the election and he made this known to the media as a direct response to the Ohanaeze Ndi igbo, the apex sociopolitical organization in southeastern, Nigeria, whom he believes has Endorsed Mr. Peter Obi, the former governor Of Anambra state and the front-line Presidential candidate of labour party. In his word he said:

“I have no singular reason to support anyone from the Eastern region to become the President of this country because we pretend alot.

“The gang up in the East is becoming worrisome and has not in any way helped us as a tribe. Tell me why I should support anyone from the East contesting to be President.

“During the APC Party Primary, I put in my best but what did I get in return for betrayal. Among all the aspirants, I am the most qualified but they ganged up against that mandate and turn around now to ask me to support an Igbo Presidency.

“I have said it countless times that Peter Obi is going nowhere and Ebonyi people are not going to vote for him. Our vote belongs to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Ohanaeze now have a voice to shout support Igbo Presidency but they lost their voice when injustice and saboteur was the order of the day during our party primary election.

“I wish to reaffirm my stand that our vote belongs to the APC Candidate and nobody from Ebonyi is going to vote for Labour Party. I have said it earlier and I am still saying it again.” Dave umahi

Meanwhile, in my opinion, I think dave umahi’s anger and frustration are greatly misplaced, that he lost the election is not enough reason not to support another Igbo person, it shows his selfishness, and also what happened at the Apc’s presidential primary was not a betrayal, there is no way he could match up with the financial muscle of Bola Tinubu.

Also, why trade the fates of the millions of Igbos with selfish interest knowing full well that he will jet out of the country after handing of over to the incoming government.
