Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the opposition party condemned Umahi and accused him of indiscipline for endorsing APC's Obaseki.
The party further said Umahi's endorsement of Obaseki had dampened the morale of members.
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 had reported that Umahi declared that nobody can remove Obaseki from his seat as he blessed the Edo governor's bid for a second term.
Umahi offered his blessing on the Edo governor when, Betsy Obaseki and others paid him a courtesy visit in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state.
