Asked if Igbos would be allowed to pick the presidential ticket, Umahi: “It’s in the hands of God.
“He is. He directs our affairs. He gives breath to every man, so power belongs to God. Whatever thing we wish will come through only through God. If God says yes, no one can say no.”
Umahi’s comment is coming at a time Northern youths had declared that power would remain in their region in 2023.
National President of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, Shettima Yerima, had said the North still had four years at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second tenure in 2023.
