The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umah, says President Muhammadu’s body language favours the emergence of a Southerner as his successor in 2023.
It should be noted that the Governor is one of the presidential aspirants under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking to newsmen in Owerri, Imo State capital, he said that Nigerians need not to be apprehensive of an individual from the South-East becoming president.
He urged them to shun the calls for secession because Igbos have property and investments everywhere.
“So when people tell you about Biafra, it is not about seceding at all”,
Umahi assured that “the Igbo man will do better under a united Nigeria”.
He also wants power rotation between the North and South maintained.
He called on the South-South and the South-West to support the South-East to produce the best President.
“The North-East and South-East are the two regions that are most marginalized”, Umahi said.
