Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi on Tuesday declared his presidential ambition at the State House in Abuja.
His declaration comes 24 hours after former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, also indicated interest in the race.
Both men are members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Umahi, speaking at a press briefing after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, said his presidency will replicate his progressive efforts in Ebonyi at the national level.
He said he intends to bring a business-like spirit into governance.
According to him, President Buhari responded to his interest by asking him to seek the support of the people.
