The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, has stated that his Anambra counterpart, Charles Soludo has been vindicated by the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.
Governor Soludo has been vocal about his belief that the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, would not win the election.
Speaking on the issue on Monday, Umahi disclosed that Soludo has been vindicated and the he (Umahi) is not against the southeast for voting massively for Obi.
While addressing stakeholders at the Ebonyi International Airport, Onueke in the Ezza South Local Government Area of the state, the governor said the All Progressives Congress (APC) does not condemn what Obi achieved at the polls.
“The All Progressives Congress is not angry or does not condemn Obi’s feat as the South-East has made a strong statement with it.
“One, however, digs with two-arrowed woods so that when one fails to stick on the target, the other wood will stick to it”, he stated.
Speaking further, Umahi added that Igbos would be wise to acknowledge the fact that they alone cannot make themselves president.
“Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State harped on this fact and was crucified for it but his words have come to pass.
“The wise thing for the Igbos to do is to tell themselves the truth that we alone cannot make ourselves President.
“We have to work with other tribes as the South-West did with the North and have succeeded.
“We have to stop being parochial and clannish; who could have believed that Obi was talking with me up till the last minute?”
