2023: ‘Don’t Reckon On The Assurances Of Umahi’ – PDP Warns Tinubu

JUST IN: Tinubu Storms Owo In Ondo Amid APC Presidential Primaries

The People’s Democratic Party has warned the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu against resting on the assurance of Enugu State Governor, David Umahi that residents of the state will support him.

David Umahi while speaking at the new Government House, Centenary City, Abakaliki said the state belongs to APC and urged stakeholders not to support mushroom political Parties, especially LP wherein Peter Obi emerged as a Presidential candidate.

However, the PDP in a statement signed by its State Publicity Secretary, Chika Nwoba said Umahi is not the spokesperson of the general public and does not have the right to tell electorates who to vote for.

The opposition party urged Umahi to fix his party to enable them to have a gubernatorial candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections. Chika Nwoba added that Umahi is currently suffering from the emotion of his failed presidential ambition and warned Tinubu not to listen to him.

The statement read: “The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi State has been drawn to a statement credited to the Governor, Engr David Umahi wherein he said that Ebonyi people wouldn’t vote for the PDP presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, but would vote for the APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”

“It should be known to the general public that David Umahi is not the spokesperson of the generality of the people of Ebonyi State and as such, doesn’t have the locus standi to say whom and whom not Ebonyi citizens are going to vote for.”

“As a political party, we wish to charge Mr Umahi to put his house, APC, in Ebonyi State in order, so that the party can have a gubernatorial candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections.”

“A man whose house is on fire doesn’t run after rodents. Ebonyi citizens of voting age are very wise and know where to lay their hands in the time of rain. Without mincing words, Ebonyi is a PDP State and this status will be upheld beyond 2023.”

“We wish to inform Nigerians to discard that statement from Umahi, as he spoke in the emotion of a politician who failed woefully in the just concluded presidential primary election of the APC.”
