Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state has disclosed the South East social-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo has no stake in his presidential ambition.
The governor who was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday to inform President Muhammadu Buhari of his decision to vie for the presidency on the platform of the All Progressive Congress APC, said Ohaneze Ndigbo is not expected to dabble in partisan politics.
Fielding questions from newsmen, Umahi said: “Ohaneze leadership should not play politics. Yes, they can speak for the interest of the South East, they can speak for fair treatment to South East as a people, but as a matter of equity, justice and fairness, and leaving a level playing field for all the political parties and the aspirants.
“They should not dabble into politics or whom to support or whom not to support. I think that they hear it just like they heard of the other political parties aspirants. We will also write them to notify them that yes, they have capable sons and daughters that if God wills, that could do this job”.
