Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has confirmed that he has dumped the People’s Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress.
The governor, in a chat with the media at the new government house, said his exit from the PDP is a protest against the party’s ill-treatment of the Southeast.
“I am not driven by selfish interests but because we need to protest against marginalisation. We have benefited more from the APC government. I didn’t start this protest today. I have no regrets. In life you have to be courageous” he said.
Umahi is said to be eying the country’s top job with the Southeastern part of the country warming up to succeed President Buhari at the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
