Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has revealed why he’s supporting the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, instead of the former Anambra state governor, Peter Obi, saying people of the Igbo extraction pretend a lot.
Governor Umahi, who showed his worrisome over the high level of gang-up in the East said this in a statement released on Thursday.
In the statement, Umahi disclosed that he has no reason to support anyone contesting for the presidency from the Eastern region of Nigeria because they pretend a lot.
“I have no singular reason to support anyone from the Eastern region to become the President of this country because we pretend a lot,” he said
“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.
He stressed that during the APC presidential primary election, despite being the most qualified candidate, the only thing he could get from the people from the Eastern region was betrayal and now they have turned back to him to ask for his support for the Igbo presidency.
“During the APC Party Primary, i put in my best but what did I get in return 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.
“Ohanaeze now have 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.
Umahi reiterated that the Labour Party presidential candidate is not going to win the election in his state because his people are going to vote for nobody else but the APC candidate, Bola Tinubu. He added:
“I have said it countless times that Peter Obi is going nowhere and Ebonyi people are not going to vote him. Our vote belongs to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“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.”
