The governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to run for the presidency during the 2023 election. Governor Umahi revealed this to State House correspondents after meeting behind closed doors with the President. When given the opportunity, he said he would replicate his efforts in Ebonyi, claiming that he has a lot of experience in running government like a business. This, however, comes barely 24 hours after the All Progressive Congress, APC, national leader Asiwaju Bola Tinunbu also announced his intention to run for the presidency in 2023. Umahi dumped the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC in 2020.
