President Buhari, Governor Umahi.
Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State says only God can decide who will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
The Ebonyi State Governor ststed this while fielding questions from State House correspondents on Monday shortly after meeting with President Buhari.
Speaking on the possibility of the Southeast to produce a Presidential candidate the forthcoming poll, Governor Umahi said the Southeast requires the anointing of God to produce a President in 2023.
He submitted that, Southeasterners are working in their different political parties to ensure their parties concede its Presidential tickets to the region.
Governor Umahi, who is the Chairman of the Southeast Governors’ Forum, said God will give the country the next President who has a good heart like Buhari for the good of this country.
“My position about what you ask is that our people that are in those political parties are making the effort in selling the need for the Southeast to produce the next President.”
“But I think both the Governors and Mr. President should not be distracted. When the elections are done and won, it should be governance. But in this country, the moment the election is completed, the next one starts it is the masses that are being cheated.”
“So, those whose job is politics and who are not into elected positions, or appointed positions have all the time and the opportunity to do this canvassing. And I think that doing it is worth doing it very well.”
“But I continue to say that power rests in the hands of God. And God will also give us the next President who has a good heart like President Buhari for the good of this country”.
“We need God’s own anointing for our own anointed President for the interests and unity of this country.”
