2023 Presidency; I Will Declare When I Receive Divine Directives -- Gov Umahi

By Celestine Okeh

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State on Tuesday said, he did not authorize any presidential campaign on his behalf. Noting that he will do, when he receives Divine directives.

In a statement from his Special Assistant on media and publicity, Mr Francis Nwaze, stated that the Governor is currently preoccupied with delivering of democracy dividends to the people of Ebonyi State. And also, as  a law abiding leader, Governor Umahi cannot authorize such activities when the time for it has not been approved by the umpire. 

His statement reads in full;

"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:

"That His Excellency 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.

"That His Excellency, being a respecter of constituted authorities could not have launched such full-scale campaign into the office of the President even when the electoral umpire is yet to open the window for such exercise.

"That His Excellency 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.

"That the Governor 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".

Recall that the image of Governor Umahi crested on smart phones from the Northern part of the country, recently, flooded the Cyber space, calling for question on who authorized the campaign.
