- Governor Umahi of Ebonyi state has dismissed allegation that he is making plans to join the APC
- The governor said his landslide victory in just concluded governorship election in Ebonyi against his opponent Senator Ogbuoji has disorganised him
- According to the re-elected governor of the state, the senator has begun his immodest naked dance in the market places
David Umahi, the re-elected governor of Ebonyi state, on Wednesday, March 13, chided the governorship candidate of the APC, Senator Sonni Ogbuoji, over allegation that he is making plans to join the ruling party.
In a statement through his chief press secretary, Emmanuel Uzor, Umahi wondered why Ogbuoji never resigned his membership of the PDP after joining the APC, Nigerian Tribune reports.
The statement read: “Expectedly, a man rejected by both his family members and the generality of Ebonyi state like Senator Sonni Ogbuoji, the APC governorship candidate in the last governorship election in Ebonyi state has begun his immodest naked dance in the market place.
“As usual, pains of defeat especially in the magnitude Ogbuorji was trounced by the Governor of Ebonyi state, Chief David Umahi has started to manifest and so, the centre can no longer hold as regards Ogbuoji’s state of mind.
“Rather than accept the verdict of the entire people of the state as expressed in their ballots of last Saturday, Ogbuoji has taken his frustration far beyond the shores of the state,.
“Senator Ogbuoji in his recent interview with journalists in Enugu said, rather than defend his lackluster performance in the last governorship election in the state accused the governor who defeated him mercilessly of plans to defect to the APC.
“To say the least, Senator Ogbuoji’s statement smacks of a frustration because he was not only trounced by Umahi but was stripped off the little remaining man in him politically, thereby making him irrelevant in the political space in Ebonyi state.
“Come to think of it, Ogbuoji alleged in his press conference that Governor Umahi was a mole in PDP, a statement that is not just unfortunate but irresponsible because he (Ogbuoji) lacks all moral justifications to know who is a mole and who is not because he represented what a typical mole is in APC.
“How come Senator Ogbuoji never resigned his membership of the PDP, a party in whose platform he was elected a senator twice?

“How come Senator Ogbuoji who claimed to be the governorship candidate of APC compromised on the presidential election to the extent of losing his own polling unit and ward to the PDP?
“If Ogbuoji was not a mole in APC, how come he won clearly his own governorship election in his polling unit and ward which he clearly lost during the presidential election?
“This was part of his unholy agreement with some PDP National Assembly candidates whom he entered into agreement with to ensure that President Buhari did not garner any vote in Ebonyi state.
“Unknown to him, the APC National Working Committee knows the character of Ogbuoji. So they allowed him wallow and ate his own flesh in the last governorship election.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Senator Sonni Ogbuoji, governorship candidate of the APC, in Ebonyi state, alleged that Governor Umahi would defect to the APC on or before May 29 inauguration of elected Nigeria’s president and governors.
Umahi who was reelected for second term in office, was a state chairman of the PDP and was the deputy governor of Ebonyi state before he was elected first term governor in 2015.
