My Family Conspired Against Me To Vote For Peter Obi – Gov Umahi

David Umahi, the governor, has admitted that without his knowledge, members of his family plotted to vote for Peter Obi of the Labour Party during the presidential election.

During an interview with Channels Television on Monday, he revealed this.

At the polls on February 25, he claimed it was unexpected that President Muhammadu Buhari and the president-elect had lost their states to the other parties.

He claimed that the votes the LP received during the election were not a result of Peter Obi, but rather were protest votes in response to what appeared to be hardship and difficulties in Nigeria.


“In all honesty, I didn’t give any chance to the Labour 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 saw the Labour Party vote as a protest against my Party (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

“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”, he stated.
