Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has said he’s solidly behind Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu and he’s obedient to him.
The Presidential candidate of APC, Tinubu is running a Muslim-Muslim ticket with Kashim Shettima.
The ticket has sparked controversy with the Christian communities in the country kicking against it.
Recall that Umahi defected from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on the ground of incessant marginalization of the South-East geopolitical zone by the PDP, especially on denying Ndigbo the chance of producing the President of the country from Igbo extraction.
However, speaking during at a town hall meeting in the new government house, centenary City Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State, Umahi said he has no apologies for pitching his tent with Tinubu-Shettima.
In attendance at the meeting are all traditional rulers, political leaders and elders council of the State with the presidential candidate of APC, Tinubu,
The governor stressed that he has no regret for declaring support for Tinubu-Shettima Presidential ambition and for defecting to the APC.
According to him: “Everywhere you go in Ebonyi State is APC. We are only Obidient to you Bola Tinubu. We have no apologies. I’m speaking any how because I’m standing on our performances that we have achieved in Ebonyi State.”
