Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state has said that Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra state has been ‘vindicated’ after predicting that the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, would not win.
Umahi who addressed stakeholders and people of Ezza clan at Ebonyi International Airport, Onueke, in Ezza South Local Government Area of the state, stated that it is always important for every tribe to reserve a slot for negotiation.
“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.
“Govenor Charles Soludo of Anambra State harped on this fact and was crucified 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?”
