The defection of Governor Umahi from the PDP to the APC has continued to generate heated reactions as former Ekiti state governor and PDP chieftain, Ayodele Fayose slammed Umahi over the political move
The former governor said Umahi did not leave the PDP because of his interest in the southeast’s development as he claimed.
Justifying his defection Umahi had blamed it on alleged injustice the southeast suffered in the hands of the PDP.
However, Fayose debunked Governor Umahi’s defection claims saying it had nothing to do with advancing the interest of Ndigbo.
In a related development the PDP has reconstituted its Ebonyi state caretaker committee after Umahi’s defection.
