Kelechi Igwe, deputy governor of Ebonyi has told his boss to compulsorily contest for the presidency in 2023.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Igwe said this when led members of the state executive council to visit Dave Umahi in Uburu, his hometown.
“This particular visit is unique because it is the first time since our participation in government that we are determining as a people to change the political gear,” NAN quoted Igwe as saying.
“When you announced that it was time to move on, a lot of us were foot-dragging, wanting to make consultations but at the end, decided to move with you. I must confess that some of us didn’t like the APC but decided to join it because of you. So, we are declaring that you must contest the 2023 presidential election.”
