I've no plan to dump PDP, says Ebonyi Governor

30 November 2015, 14:33 Daniel Akpu

Governor Chief David Umahi of Ebonyi State said he has no plan to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.    

Governor Umahi who spoke during a courtesy visit by the leadership of the Abakpa Main Market Traders Association at the Government House in Abakaliki; reaffirmed his resolve  to retain his membership of PDP. Umahi was reacting to the speculations in a section of the media that he was set to move to the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC.

“When I said publicly that Ebonyi people will support Mr. President, they said, we have moved to  the  APC.  PDP remains our party and  will remain our party. “But we need help and the way to get it is not to start castigating the President and no governor should castigate the President.  But opposition belongs to the political parties.

For me and you, we are still bonafide members of the PDP.” On the continuous protests by the Pro-Biafra agitators, Governor Umahi said South-East governors  had listened to the complaints of the IPOB  agitators and had  decided  to discuss them with the President; noting that "no one could say that what they are saying is completely outside the truth.

“We have listened to the complaints of the boys. There is no way anybody could say that what they are saying is completely outside the truth, but just like husband and wife, you must have a way of getting along through dialogue. “The governors of the  South-East have taken up their matter to discuss with Mr. President and I believe that we don’t need another war in this country.  I want to plead with you to encourage whoever is involved that we have taken up the matter and we will do everything possible to make sure that their feelings are addressed.  “We should not support secession.

We should not support demonstrations; we should not support the  castigation of our leaders”,he said.
