Governors elected on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised Ebonyi state governor, Dave Umahi to direct his frustrations and anger on the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governors in a statement on Saturday by the Director General if PDP Governors Forum, Hon. CID Maduabum said that the governor has been a mole while he was in the PDP and became agitated having realized that the promises that lures him into the ruling party were hogwash.
Going down memory lane on some of the anti-party activities played by Gov. Umahi while in the PDP, the statement continued: “Governor Umahi sabotaged the PDP in 2019 elections in his quest to deliver 25% to his APC benefactors. It took the determined resistance of Ebonyi people to checkmate him. It was good riddance that he subsequently left PDP for APC instead of continuing his role as an APC mole”.
Reacting to his recent statement that PDP may not zone it’s Presidential ticket to the South, the giver it’s said,
“On the issue of Zoning, we advise Governor Umahi to face his frustrations in APC and not drag PDP and her Governors into it. PDP is an independent political Party with workable structures and method of doing things. It’s not an appendage of the APC or indeed any other association or group.
“The PDP will take its decision on the issue of zoning political offices at the appropriate time. Even the APC has not taken any decision yet on zoning. Different groups and interests are advancing arguments to defend their positions as is required in a democracy. At the end of the day, decisions will be taken by each political party.
“The PDP is single minded in its resolve to boot out the APC in 2023 and would craft strategies to achieve same in the national interest as APC currently represents an existential threat to Nigerias democracy and survival. Indeed all Nigerians have a duty and responsibility to end this long nightmare of APC misrule”.
