PDP fires own governor Umahi for endorsing APC counterpart

- For blessing his Edo state counterpart ahead of the next governorship poll, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi is currently on the spot

- The national headquarters of his party is studying a letter from the Edo state branch accusing Umahi of anti-party activity

- Daisy Danjuma, a former senator, is also facing the same allegation as Umahi

Dave Umahi of Ebonyi is not having it funny with his political organisation, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for giving his blessing to Godwin Obaseki, his colleague in Edo state and member of another political party.

Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is in his first term and not having a good relationship with Adams Oshiomhole, the man who handed over to him in 2016.

The PDP described Umahi's backing of Obaseki as a threat to the success of the party ahead of the election in Edo state.

The opposition party condemned Umahi and accused him of indiscipline.

The party further said Umahi's endorsement of Obaseki had dampened the morale of members.

Premium Times reports that Dan Orbih, who heads the state chapter of the PDP, made the allegation against Umahi in a letter he sent to the headquarters of the party in Abuja.

Orbih urged Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP, to call those endorsing Obaseki to order.

The state's PDP also accused a former senator, Daisy Danjuma, of endorsing Obaseki.

However, the report quoted her as saying she does not regret endorsing Obaseki.

“I have never left the PDP or decamped to any party like others. It is my right to free comment and I have exercised that,” Daisy Danjuma said.

Legit.ng reports that Umahi had declared that nobody can remove Obaseki from his seat as he blessed the Edo governor's bid for a second term.
