The Peoples Democratic Party has spoken about what has happened to Governor David Umahi since he left PDP and decided to join APC.
The National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan made a statement on Saturday, September 18th saying since the defection of Umuahi he has become pathetically confused and disoriented because he realized he joined a one-chance bus.
He said Umuahi was currently floating politically and was planning to attack the governors elected under the PDP platform for his own political agenda of public relevance.
Ologbondiyan further stated that the PDP found Umuahi’s actions pathetic after he mortgaged his conscience over President Muhammadu’s administration which he described as oppressive.
He said: “out of his personal ambition, joined the All Progressives Congress, APC, while still sitting on the mandate of the PDP in Ebonyi state, he has become pathetically confused and disoriented, having realized that he joined a ‘one chance’ bus, with strange and deceitful co-travellers.
“It is clear that Governor Umahi is now politically floating and seeks to use an unwarranted attack on governors elected on the platform of the PDP to actualize his desperation for public relevance.
“The PDP finds it very pathetic that having mortgaged his conscience, over his self-confessed love for the oppressive administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Umahi is manifestly accommodating the daily incidences of killings, wanton destruction of property, kidnapping and other acts of terrorism going on in Ebonyi state and the nation at large under the APC.
“The PDP charges Governor Umahi to show his claimed commitment to the South-east by jettisoning his personal ambition and summoning the courage to call out President Buhari for his divisiveness, injustice, incompetence, treasury looting and insecurity that have become the hallmark of his failed administration.
“On zoning, our party urges Governor Umahi to focus on his fizzling APC and leave the PDP alone. By now, Governor Umahi ought to know that the PDP is a party of due process and inclusiveness and that all interests within our party will collectively and peacefully take decision on zoning when the time comes.”
