- Governor David Umahi has justified his defection from the PDP to the APC
- The Ebonyi state governor suggested that the APC is a better option for Nigerians
- Umahi extolled the virtues of his new political party
Governor David Umahi has disclosed the reasons why he believes the five years administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is far better than the 16 years that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) controlled the federal government.
The Ebonyi state governor who recently defected from the PDP to the APC on Friday, November 20, said his state has benefited more under the current ruling party.
He also praised the way the party runs its affairs, claiming that the APC is not under the control of a single person, Channels TV reported.
The governor said:
“When you compare, I can see that the partial administration of the APC is far better than that of my former party. No one person in APC is dictating the affairs of the party.
“I continue to say that the 16 years of PDP and the five to six years of APC central government have a lot to show in my state. I am not choosing APC out of protest.”
Umahi explained that his decision to dump the PDP for the ruling party wasn’t done out of protests.
Meanwhile, the former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has reacted to the defection of Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state from PDP to the APC.
The Nation reported that he said he would never jump ship like some politicians who were bereft of political ideology, describing those indulging in such act as “political robbers.”
Fayose said Governor Umahi had defected to APC long ago before his "unjustifiable" move, adding that the defection clearly has nothing to do with the interest of the Igbo nation.
The Ebonyi state governor has been criticised by former members of his party over his move to the APC.
