Ebonyi state governor, David Umahi is set allegedly to decamp to the All Progressives Congress (APC), latest May 29th.
A candidate of the APC, Senator Sonni Ogbuoji disclosed this in Enugu while rejecting the just concluded governorship election in which Umahi who ran on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party won.
The senator who is representing Ebonyi South in the upper chamber told reporters that having known the antecedents of the governor, they would not accept him in APC. He also blamed the failure of the party in the election on the internal wrangling among the members.
“What rather happened as all party insiders know is that the APC in Ebonyi worked so much against itself. By this allusion, I don’t indict all the members or leadership, I am actually talking about the moles among us that double dealt and made things impossible for us while they cloaked like part of us,” he said
Ogbuoji went on to commend those party members who worked assiduously for the party, and encouraged candidates not to despair in the face of the development which he refered to as a rape of democracy.
