Too earlier to campaign for 2023, Ebonyi Gov, Umahi says

The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has said that the agitation for the zoning of the Presidency to the south East part of the country is too early, adding that the clamour is distracting to engage in 2023 elections.

Umahi told state house correspondents after a meeting with the President on Monday that although power rests in the hands of God, his prayer is that in 2023, the country will gain a President with a good heart like that of Muhammadu Buhari.

He further asserts that the sit at home order declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is the worst thing to happen to the South East because it will potentially cripple the economy of the area.

Governor Umahi noted that fear and uncertainty about their security enables compliance.

He, however, said that the leaders of the zone in collaboration with Ohaneze Ndigbo are cooperating to aggregate the grievances of the youths of the area in order to table it before the President for action.

The governor further commended the President on his support towards the megaprojects in the south East particularly the Second Niger Bridge, the award of the eastern corridor of the railway line which according to him would fast track commercial activities in the area.
