Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State on Sunday revealed how his successor will be ‘selected’.
According to him, “intense prayers will be carried out in the 13 local government areas of the state for God to reveal who will succeed him.”
He said no politician in the state can influence his successor in 2023 except God.
The governor spoke at a Special Thanksgiving service in Christ Embassy, Mile 50 Abakaliki, the state capital.
Mr Umahi alleged that many politicians prefer attending functions outside the state while shunning state government functions.
According to him, “such politicians are doing so in their bid to wield influence from outside the state with a view to determining who will succeed him in 2023.”
