2023: Umahi Can Run For President – Femi Adesina
Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has been touted as a potential presidential aspirant in 2023 by Femi Adesina, the Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President.
The Presidential aide, however, expressed that the ruling All Progressives Congress has not come out with its zoning formula.
He expressed that Umahi has the right to aspire for any position in government “as long as he can muster the needed support and momentum for victory.”
Adesina made this known in a piece on Friday titled, ‘Dave Umahi’s Heart of Lion’.
He 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.
“My first inkling of what was on the way was about two years ago. There was a meeting of Progressive Governors (as those elected on the platform of APC are called), and Gov Umahi had sent his deputy to attend. A PDP man among APC Governors? Something was definitely cooking.
“Now, the deed has been done. Gov Umahi has done what Napoleon couldn’t do. He has officially crossed from the PDP to APC. Only a man with the heart of a lion could do that.”
