2023 Presidency: I Am Waiting For Divine Direction – Dave Umahi Reveals More
The chairman of South East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, on Tuesday, denied sponsoring presidential campaign posters that flooded social media on Monday.
Umahi debunked this through in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Francis Nwaze.
The statement reads in part: “The Governor of Ebonyi State has observed with keenness, campaign posters on smart phones bearing his name and picture with the inscription “Engr. David Nweze Umahi for president 2023” and widely circulated on various Social Media platforms and online Television Stations, as well as strategic locations across the country, and I elect to make the following clarifications.
“The Governor did not authorize such campaigns on his behalf; however, the Governor understands that the move may be in good faith, a show of solidarity and true belief in the experience and ingenuity of His Excellency to highly contribute in the development of our dear nation – Nigeria.
“Umahi, being a respecter of constituted authorities, could not have launched such a full-scale campaign into the office of the President even when the electoral umpire is yet to open the window for such exercise.
“The governor as a strong believer in the Divine Mandate of God would wait on the Lord for divine directives and unless and until he is divinely inspired to vie for the Presidency, he wouldn’t heed the clarion call.
“Umahi is presently occupied with delivering dividends of democracy to the good people of Ebonyi State, transforming the state in agreement with his five covenants with God as well as repositioning Southeast and contributing his quota as at when needed in the nation-building,” he stated.
