    Jun 2, 2022

    There was an exchange of blows among drivers, security personnel and supporters of the All Progressive Congress on Wednesday at the party’s secretariat over a fifty thousand Naira cash gift from Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi.

    Two days after being screened by the John Odigie-led presidential screening committee in Abuja, Umahi rushed into the Secretariat to see APC National Chairman Abdullahi Adamu.

    After the over-an-hour closed-door meeting, Umahi completely ignored questions from journalists and walked to his car.

    The governor turned and threw a bale of N50,000 crisp notes as he was about to enter.

    Many APC supporters, security personnel, and drivers exchanged blows as they rushed to share the loot.

    Recall that Umahi was one of the 23 recently screened presidential aspirants who turned up at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja.

    The other 22 aspirants included National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Tinubu; former Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi; Senior Pastor of the Citadel Global Church, Tunde Bakare; former Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba; Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi; Jigawa Governor, Mohammed Badaru; Senator Ajayi Borroffice; former Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun; former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, US-based Pastor, Nicholas Felix and others.
