David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi state, voted in under the PDP, says he is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, during a “stakeholders” forum with PDP members in Uburu, Ohaozara local government area of the state during the weekend, told them to forget about their planned defection to the APC because he’s already a member.
He told them to stay in one party and stop running “from here to here” as this could amount to anti-party activities, adding that he is the only one who can engage in such and “nothing will happen”.
“Stay in one place. Don’t run from here to there and from there to here,” the governor said.
“E no make sense. If you say you dey there (APC), know I am already there. If you go to APC, I am an APC member. If you go to PDP, I am there.
“I am the only person that does anti-party and nothing will happen. Any other person that does anti-party is gone. So, I am representing you in APC while you all stay in PDP. If you like, go and write it on social media.”
Governor Umahi is a strong ally and supporter of President Buhari, he is one of the Governors who have shown support for the APC Federal Government irrespective of him being in an opposing party. He had once threatened to sack any aide who insults the president.
During the campaigns for the Presidential election, he ignored the PDP candidate Atiku Abubakar and mobilized supporters for Muhammadu Buhari.
