According to him, anyone that would receive his support would someone not above his age limit for the 2023 governorship election in the State. He added that there were several benefits of having a young and vibrant person as the governor of the state.

“I will not support anyone that is older than me for Governor come 2023. We need someone that is energetic and ready to lead with every commitment.  I will not engage in 2023 politics now, I can only talk politics a year to the end of my tenure not now. We are more concerned with developing the state and cannot be distracted by desperate people who are hungry for power and not for the betterment of the people”.

Umahi further noted that he could not be distracted by desperate people who were hungry for power and not for the betterment of the people.
