The Special Assistant on Strategy to the Ebonyi State Governor, Chuks Okoh quoted Tinubu as describing Umahi as“a dogged fighter who threw in everything during the contest and a man with proven track records and capacity to do well in any position.
“Umahi has become a rallying point for Igbo integration in the mainstream national politics.”
