UMAHI’S DEFECTION: PDP DODGES ZONING AS APC WOOS UGWUANYI, IKPEAZU, OBIANO

Written by on November 17, 2020

THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS HAS STEPPED UP MOVES TO PERSUADE MORE GOVERNORS FROM THE SOUTH-EAST REGION TO JOIN IT FOLLOWING THE DECISION OF THE EBONYI STATE GOVERNOR, DAVID UMAHI, TO DUMP THE PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

QUEST NEWS GATHERED THAT THE APC CARETAKER/EXTRA-ORDINARY NATIONAL CONVENTION PLANNING COMMITTEE LED BY THE YOBE STATE GOVERNOR, MAI MALA BUNI, HAD DIRECTED THE PARTY’S LEADERS IN THE SOUTH-EAST TO REACH OUT TO MORE GOVERNORS AND NATIONAL ASSEMBLY MEMBERS IN THE REGION.

WE ALSO LEARNT THAT AMONG THOSE BEING TARGETED BY THE APC LEADERS WERE THE ABIA STATE GOVERNOR, OKEZIE IKPEAZU; HIS ENUGU STATE COUNTERPART, IFEANYI UGWUANYI; AND WILLY OBIANO OF ANAMBRA STATE.

BUT THE PDP, THE PARTY ON WHOSE PLATFORM BOTH THE ABIA AND ENUGU STATE GOVERNORS WERE ELECTED, TOLD REPORTERS THAT IT WAS NOT DISTURBED BY THE APC’S MOVES.

THE PDP INSISTED THAT THE COUNTRY’S CONSTITUTION GUARANTEED FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, ADDING THAT A GALE OF DEFECTION WOULD SOON HIT THE APC.
