Ebonyi State Governor, Engr David Umahi has said that he may be favoured in Buharis heart to be the candidate that will succeed him in 2023 when he must have completed his term in office as he said during his media chat.
Umahi said he is not afraid to contest for President under the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC, with Alhaji Bola Tinibu and the Vice President Prof. Yemi Osibanjo but pray for Favour from President Buhari.
ORBITNEWS gathered that the governor who notified President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest for President said power comes from God.
“I believe that it is God who spoke to me to contest for President under the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC. And I have told President Muhammadu Buhari of my intention to contest. We must do anything possible to remove ethnicity in the country.
“You know that Mr President is a father. And he believes in given everybody equal opportunities to exercise their faith. And so, you would expect Mr. President to be a man of integrity. He told me that people who will contest for President must consult wildly.
“I’m not a mind reader and I don’t know what is in the mind of Mr President. If it pleases God, He will input me in the heart of President Muhammadu Buhari and I will become that favoured candidate. But for now, he has not told me and I cannot read his (Buhari) mind.
