But the Governor through a press statement signed by the State Commissioner for Information, Barrister Uchenna Orji, said the post in circulation was authored by political jobbers.

The statement read;

The attention of Ebonyi State government has been drawn to a social media post being recently in circulation and purported to have been authored by the hard-working Governor of Ebonyi State by miserable and frustrated political jobbers.

For the records, the Governor of Ebonyi State is not against His Excellency, Peter Obi for Presidency but in fact deeply appreciates his courage in his campaign.

It further clarified;

His Excellency, Engr Umahi never said that Peter Obi is going nowhere and that he does not believe in Igbo Presidency.

However, His Excellency David Nweze Umahi is a member of APC and shall support the party in all their state and national elections as a good party man.

The Governor believes that most party members will defend their parties during elections and people will freely vote for candidates of their choice.
