Governor David Umahi has revealed that his family conspired against him to vote for Labor Party’s Peter Obi without his knowledge in the presidential election.
He revealed that on Monday in a Channel Television interview.
He said it was surprising that President Muhammadu Buhari and the president-elect lost their states to opposition parties in the February 25 election.
According to him, the number of votes that the LP got in the election was not because of Peter Obi but the number of votes against him due to the obvious difficulties and challenges in Nigeria.
“In all honesty, I didn’t give any chance to the Labor Party to win any election in my State (Ebonyi State) because what we have put in place was such that no other political party should be able to win anything, not even Councilorship election in my State.
“I was very surprised; even in my family, there was a conspiracy against me. I did not know that they voted for Peter Obi, but in the other election, they voted for APC because of what we’ve done in the State.
“It was not a vote for His Excellency Peter Obi. As such, there is seemingly hardship and challenges in Nigeria”,
On the other hand, Umahi had clinched the Ebonyi South Zone Senatorial seat to represent his constituency at the 10th National Assembly.
