“The gang up in the East is becoming worrisome and has not in any way helped us as a tribe. Tell me why I should support anyone from the East contesting to be President.
“During the APC Party Primary, i put in my best but what did I get in return betrayal. Among all the aspirants, I am the most qualified but they ganged up against that mandate and turn around now to ask me to support an Igbo Presidency.
“I have said it countless times that Peter Obi is going nowhere and Ebonyi people are not going to vote him. Our vote belongs to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Ohanaeze now have voice to shout support Igbo Presidency but they lost their voice when injustice and saboteur was the order of the day during our party primary election.
“I wish to reaffirm my stand that our vote belongs to the APC Candidate and nobody from Ebonyi is going to vote for Labour Party. I have said it earlier and I am still saying it again.”
