Umahi meets Buhari and declares intention to run for president in 2023

David Umahi, the Governor of Ebonyi State, has confirmed his candidacy for the 2023 presidential election.

He met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Abuja to inform him of his desire to run for the ruling All Progressives Congress' presidential ticket in 2023.

When asked what he and the President talked about, Umahi said, "We discussed politics, the expansion of our party APC in Nigeria and the South-East, and the interest of the South-East in the 2023 presidency."

He added, "if the APC throws its ticket to the southern part of Nigeria, his achievement in the past six years would enable him to clinch the ticket. 

"The President believes that anyone that wants to run for the presidency must have to consult widely and go to all the leaders. 

"We must do everything to remove ethnicity and religion in our polity so that this country can grow."
