Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has announced his interest in contesting the 2023 presidential election.

Umahi revealed this to the State House Correspondents on Tuesday after a closed-door meeting with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor’s visit to the Villa comes barely 24 hours after the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, met Buhari to notify him of his presidential ambition.

Emerging from the President’s office on Tuesday, Umahi confirmed that he discussed the issue with Buhari, who asked him to go and seek the support of the people.

The governor said he is undeterred by Tinubu’s presence, saying that the contest is not about might.

Umahi defected from Peoples Democratic Party to the APC in November 2020.
