The governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi has declared that ‘no force, power, propaganda and manipulation’ would stop Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu from being sworn in as president on the 29th of May, 2023.


Governor Umahi made the declaration at the Governor’s Office, New Government House, Abakaliki when the speaker of the state House of Assembly and governor-elect, Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, presented his certificate of return to the outgoing governor.


He expressed concern over what he described as extreme politics in the country insisting that extreme politics must be deemphasised in the country to enable the incoming administration focus on building a new and better Nigeria.


Umahi who maintained that he is still in the race for the position of the Senate president of the 10th Assembly added that the Nigerian constitution is superior to any protocol or any other rule or order being projected by certain individuals.
