PDP Defection: Wike and Umahi go head-to-head
Post created on 9:16 am
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has faulted the reason given by his Ebonyi counterpart, David Umahi, for dumping the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said the movement was because of Mr Umahi’s ambition to be the APC’s presidential candidate in 2023.
Mr Umahi had said he defected from the PDP because of the party’s injustice against his South-east zone. But Mr Wike said the claim is not true.
He therefore called on governor Umahi to retract his claim.
Meanwhile, Umahi, governor of Ebonyi state, says Nyesom Wike, his Rivers counterpart, is a “dictator” who “remote-controls” the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Umahi stated this in reaction to Wike’s comment that he left the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC) because of his 2023 presidential ambition.
He, warned Wike against “attacking” him over his decision to the leave the PDP.
