Okinbaloye had asked the governor who defected to the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in November last year about the chances of an Igbo man becoming Nigeria’s President under the APC in 2023, and Umahi responded that an Igbo man winning the election under APC is in God hands.
Okinbaloye replied the governor, “but God is not a member of your party (APC).
Dave Umahi contested to be the governor of in Ebonyi State in 2015, on the platform of the PDP and won.
And, upon concluding his first term, the governor won the bid to extend his stay in office in the 2019 general elections, again as the PDP candidate, but defected to the APC in less than a year later.
Captioning a clip from the interview he posted on his Instagram page, Okinbaloye wrote: AN IGBO MAN BECOMING PRESIDENT UNDER APC IS IN THE HANDS OF GOD: When asked if there is any hope that anyone from the South East will become President, Gov. Umahi put such suggestions in the hands of God to direct the party leadership.
