PDP Governor, David Umahi, Visits Aso Rock, Urges Buhari To Contest For 2019

Ebonyi State governor Dave Umahi, who was elected on the platform of the opposition PDP, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to seek re-election in 2019.

Gov. Umahi said this on Thirsday in an interview with State House correspondents during his visit to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, ahead of Buhari’s visit to Ebonyi, scheduled for next week.

Asked if the President confided in him that he would run for office again, he said since it was his own desire to seek a second term as governor, he also wished the President to do the same thing.

“Any first term governor would want to go for second term. Whatever you wish yourself, you should be honest enough to wish another person the same.

“Since Mr. President is on his first term and I am on my first term, it is my wish to re-contest and I will as well wish the President the same thing: to re-contest,” the governor said.
