Following his outburst, in which he mandated Ebonyi State citizens to vote for Bola Tinubu in the forthcoming Presidential Elections, instead of Peter Obi, Ohanaeze Youth Council has said David Umahi needs a psychological assessment.
Umahi who mustered only 38 votes at the just concluded APC presidential primaries, said his State will vote for APC, not PDP and not Labour Party.
In their comments on his statement, the youth wing of the South East sociocultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, have said Umahi is not sane, and needs help.
President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike said since Umahi’s “disgraceful performance during the APC presidential primary election, he has been behaving and talking strangely.
“What he needs urgently now is an urgent psychological help because his woeful outing during the primary election has affected his reasoning.”
Okwu noted that “Umahi was deceived into joining the APC, with a fake promise of a presidential ticket. They did not just scam him but have also denied him the opportunity to produce his successor.”
“Whereas the Ohanaeze made all the regional organizations, including the Afenifere, the Middle-Belt Forum, the Niger-Delta Forum, among others, to support the Igbo cause, Umahi could not get the support of a single Governor. This goes to show that he is a paper tiger and must not be taken seriously.”
