2023 Presidency: Umahi breaks silence, says he will soon retire from politics

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has broken silence on the speculation that he is eyeing presidency in 2023 under the platform of his new party, APC

Acccording to the Governor, he wants to retore from  politics after the completion of eight years as Governor.

Speaking while Senate Chief Whip, D. Orji Uzor Kalu, hosted him in Abuja, he warned PDPto stop downplaying his personality, saying there is no need for that

He said::“I will advise them to stop the attack on me, on my person. They don’t really have anything on me. They don’t,” he said.

“The founding father of PDP is Dr. Alex Ekueme, former vice president…I believe strongly that the PDP will do the needful by putting me to shame by ceding the presidential ticket to the South East.

“And this is just my aim. I never said give it to me. There are many, many Igbo leaders who are much, much better than me and more qualified. But as their younger one, we should watch their back.

“When people speculate that I am coming to do this and do that, I just laugh because I continue to say that 2023, by God’s special grace, I would have been a governor for eight years and that is enough for me and I would have to bow out to face my business.

“So, those who are already speculating are wasting their time. Every man has got his destiny and then, a charter of life,” he said.
