Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has lambasted Ohaneze Ndigbo during his formal declaration to contest for the presidency.
Umahi who visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022 to inform him of his decision to contest the presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said;
“Ohaneze leadership should not play politics. Yes, they can speak for the interest of the South East, they can speak for fair treatment to South East as a people, but as a matter of equity, justice and fairness, and leaving a level playing field for all the political parties and the aspirants.
“They should not dabble into politics or whom to support or whom not to support. I think that they hear it just like they heard of the other political parties aspirants.”
“We will also write them to notify them that yes, they have capable sons and daughters that if God wills, that could do this job”.
