Ebonyi Governor David Nweze Umahi battles Ann Agom Eze
A Presidential support group loyal to the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Ahmed Bola Tinubu, has declared support for the senatorial ambition of the Ebonyi State Governor, David Nweze Umahi.
The group known as Patriotic Movement for Asiwaju 2023 (PMA), said the infractions caused in Ebonyi State chapter of the APC by Umahi’s main rival, Ann Agom Eze, was unfortunate, anti party and diversionary.
In a statement issued by the Acting Zonal Coordinator, South-East and Ebonyi State Cordinator, Mr. Darlington Okpoto, the group noted that Umahi has performed creditably as governor and would represent the zone effectively in the National Assembly.
He further said that Umahi would be very influential in the South East to garner support and votes for the presidential candidate of the APC.
According to him, “we have reviewed the political situation in Ebonyi state especially as it concerns the contentious senatorial ticket of Ebonyi South where the State Governor, David Umahi won during the rescheduled primary, after the voluntary withdrawal of the former winner, Austin Umahi and the Second runner, Mrs Ann Agom Eze”.
“Ordinarily, the litigation and media trials of the case are needless because a vacuum had been created before Governor Umahi won the ticket. We therefore appeal to Mrs Agom Eze to lay down her sword and allow peace reign so that APC will be focused on the task,” he added.
