Dave Umahi, governor of Ebonyi State, has said that All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu will treat the Igbo people with the same care that President Muhammadu Buhari has.
He made a speech at APC campaign rallies in Iboko, the seat of Izzi Local Government Area.
If Tinubu is elected president next month, Umahi claims the Igbos will reap several benefits.
Umahi recalled that while Tinubu was Governor of Lagos State, he ensured the Igbos were taken care of.
“We are with Tinubu and Shettima,” he declared. “They will take care of Ebonyi State the way Buhari took care of Ebonyi State. The way Buhari has been taking care of us that is the way Jagaban is going to take care of the Ndigbo.
“Jagaban was the governor of Lagos State, and under him, Ndigbo in Lagos prospered, and they are still prospering.
“This speaker has been with me for 16 years from when I was party chairman to when I was made deputy governor and then governor.”
Umahi claims that in 2023, Igbos will not let their emotions determine their voting choice.
