Umahi eligible to run for President in 2023- Femi Adesina
Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari
(retd.), claims the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, can contest for president in the 2023 elections.
Adesina said though the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has not come out with its zoning formula,
Umahi has the right to aspire for any position in government “as long as he can muster the needed support and
momentum for victory”.
According to Adesina Dave Umahi has a Lionheart, praised the Ebonyi State governor for having the courage
to dump the opposition Peoples Democratic Party for the APC.
He said Umahi had been a believer in the Buhari presidency even while he was in the opposition party.
The president’s spokesman wrote, “Umahi had always loved and respected President Muhammadu Buhari, and
never hid it, though they were of different political parties. And the President reciprocated in like manner. In
fact, the first State the President ever visited in the country and passed the night was Ebonyi. Umahi was PDP in
the exterior, but APC at heart.
