The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi said he has notified President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest for the post of president on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Party (APC) come 2023.

Umahi revealed this to the State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.

When asked what his chances would be against the background that other big political figures had indicated their intentions to run for the same office, including Asiwaju Tinubu, the Governor said God would be the decider of the outcome of the race.

Umahi, who left the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC, said he stands a chance if the APC throws the ticket open.
