Gov. Umahi drops presidential ambition; to contest Ebonyi South senatorial seat
Governor David Umahi has declared his intention to contest the Ebonyi South senatorial seat ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Mr Umahi, whose eight-year tenure as governor ends in 2023, was initially nursing a presidential ambition and had vowed to continue the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari if elected.
It is unclear the factors that informed the governor’s decision to abandon his presidential ambition as his spokesperson, Francis Nwaeze, had yet to respond to Peoples Gazette’s inquiry at the time of filing this report.
