Leaders of the opposition People’s Democratic Party(PDP) are in Abakiliki, Ebonyi state, to plead with Governor David Nweze Umahi to reconsider his decision to dump the party.
Governor Umahi who has openly expressed support for President Muhammadu Buhari, in the past has been accused by members of the opposition(even prior to the 2019 elections) of being a closet All Progressive Congress(APC) member.
With the clamour for a president from southern Nigeria and having secured his second term victory, Umahi, is said to be interested in trying his future ambition with the APC.
A tweet from the Twitter handle of PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan reads “State of the nation: @OfficialPDPNig just held a crucial meeting with Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. Dave Umahi, to deliberate on national issues.”
However, party sources say the meeting was aimed at verifying the authenticity or otherwise of Umahi’s defection moves.
