Austin Umahi, the governor of Ebonyi’s younger brother, has rejected his nomination as secretary of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).

He announced his decision not to accept the position in a statement on Thursday, according to NAN.

He stated that the post is best suited for “employment seekers” and retired government workers, and that anybody interested should approach the Ebonyi governor.

Umahi stated that he understands what he is aiming for because of his life experience.

“I am honestly humbled by this show of love but regret to inform you that I declined the appointment,” he was quoted as saying in the statement.

“This is because it is best for job seekers, retired civil servants or anyone who loves the job.

“I am also convinced that at my age and work experience, it is not in doubt that I know what I want in life. Anyone interested in the position should not hesitate to approach our indefatigable governor to do the needful.

“This is because to my knowledge, the position is still vacant.”

The younger Umahi had been elected as the All Progressives Congress (APC) senator for Ebonyi South.

He is alleged to have given up the ticket for the Ebonyi governor, who lost his quest to be the party’s presidential flag bearer.

However, a repeat of the primary election has been scheduled for July 31 in accordance with a federal high court ruling that the governor could not hold the ticket.
