2023 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION GOES KINETIC AS MR FLYOVER, GOVERNOR UMAHI INFORMS BUHARI HE’S RUNNING
Abuja: The 2023 Nigerian Presidential race has gone kinetic as Engr Dave Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, the Ebonyi State Governor just informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to run for Nigeria’s No. 1 office come February, 2023 under the platform of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Coming barely twenty four hours after Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, known to friends as the Lion of Bourdillon and to foes as the Bullion Van Politician, equally paid a visit to Aso Rock, Nigeria’s seat of power for the same reason.
The civil Engineer turned politician made the disclosure to State House correspondents after his meeting behind closed doors with President Buhari.
With the announcement, the internet is almost going into over drive as a cross section of internet users have reacted favorably to the development.
In terms of infrastructural development, which is the foundation for other aspects of development, Engr Umahi, the man Nigerians know as Mr. Flyover due to how he has transformed Abakiliki and indeed Ebonyi State into “Africa’s Dubai” with several flyovers, concrete paved roads and other awesome projects.
In addition, work has reached an advanced stage on the Abakiliki Airport under his watch.
Unarguably, in terms of infrastructural transformation, Governor Umahi is likened to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State. However, the Ebonyi transformation is more pronounced since the state had no flyover or concrete paved roads before now.
Indeed, most social media users felt that comparing Asiwaju Tinubu with Engr Umahi for the APC Presidential ticket was like comparing a “brand new Christmas dress” with a faded rag.
However, the race is just beginning.
