Governor David Umahi has revealed that only God will determine who will succeed him as governor in 2023.
Speaking in Abakaliki at the weekend during the state congress of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Umahi warned politicians to stop overheating the polity.
He said: “The best thing is to put your confidence in God, support the people and the government. I have nothing to fear and I must not replace myself. God will bring my successor. So there should be no tension; we still have one year and half to work, the other one year plus is all politics and empowerment. But we have to work first.”
Senators Sam Egwu (Ebonyi North); Ama Nnachi (Ebonyi South) and Obinna Ogba (Ebonyi Central), and the lawmaker representing Afikpo North/South Iduma Igariwey boycotted the congress.
