David Umahi, Ebonyi State governor, has said only God can decide if the Igbo will pick the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 election.
Umahi, who joined the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) last year, said this on Monday night during a chat on Channels Television.
There have been calls for the major political parties to zone their presidential tickets to the South in 2023.
When asked if an Igbo will be able to pick the presidential ticket of the APC, he said:
“It’s in the hands of God”.
When further asked if God is a member of the APC to take such a critical decision, the governor humorously answered:
“He is. He directs our affairs. He gives breath to every man so power belongs to God. Whatever thing we wish will come through only through God. If God says yes, no one can say no.”
