Breaking: Umahi fires back, urges PDP Governors to go lick their wound of mass exodus

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has fired back at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum asking them to ‘keep quiet’ and lick their wounds of mass exodus.

Umahi had accused the PDP of not being ready to zone its 2023 presidential ticket to the southern region of the country.

But In a reply, the PDP Governors’ Forum (PDP-GF), through Hon. C.I.D Maduabum, its Director-General, accused the governor of attempting “to turn truth on its head” and to have allegedly sabotaged the PDP in the 2019 presidential election.

Governor Umahi has however fired back through the Commissioner for Information and State Orientation Hon. Barr. Orji Uchenna Orji alleging frustration on the part of PDP.

The commissioner described the PDP statement as manifesting hopelessness and regret of losing an ingenious power- house in the person of Engr David Umahi.

“We find it instructive to register that delegating a staff of PDP and a man of shabby pedigree to issue a press release against a well seated Governor vindicates public judgement that PDP as presently constituted has no intrinsic political value and altruistic existential relevance.

“It is inordinately partsan for a D-G of a derailed political party to speak derogatorily, abusively and distortively of the person and achievements of a Governor who has distinguished himself as a leadership reference point in democratic governance.

“We will rather demand that the D-G of PDP Governors’ Forum visits Ebonyi State soonest to be a witness to the wonderful exploits of the Umahi’s administration and be perpetually estopped from being an agent of fake information which his party currently stand for.

“He is further invited to note that it is an insult to the collective sensibilities of the people of Ebonyi State for him to hold that one of the most peaceful and one of the fastest developing States in Nigeria is associated with ‘destruction of lives and properties’

“It is crystal clear that since Governor Umahi left the PDP, the party has continued unmitigated in deteriorating in strength and character as it is today a shadow of itself.

“It is manifestly clear that his response to the national burning issue of PDP’s zoning of the Presidency as challenged by our dear Governor is absolutely evasive and thus unwittingly begging the question.

“The D-G of PDP Governors’Forum, his principals and their other agents should leave our dear Governor out of the forewarned woes of the party, and please inexcusably face and reap the imminent mass exodus and immanent catastrophy that face the future of PDP.

“The PDP at all levels should desist from this shameful display of frustration that informs their ceaseless media attacks on our dear Governor as if he is the only person that defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC), as it will not add any value to their existence as opposition political party..
