Umahi stated this while speaking to State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa on Tuesday.

The presidential hopeful who visited the villa  to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for his two-day working trip to Ebonyi on May 5 and 6, dismissed the insinuation that the people of the South-East were no longer interested in Nigeria.
