PDP accuses Umahi of sabotaging party to deliver 25% to APC in 2019 elections
•Says the Governor was sitting on the PDP's mandate
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governor’s Forum has accused the Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi of sabotaging the Party in the 2019 elections just to deliver 25 percent to the All Progressive Congress (APC) for personal gains.
“It took the determined resistance of the Ebonyi people to checkmate him. It was good riddance that he subsequently left the PDP for APC instead of continuing his role as an APC mole” the Forum stated.
According to a statement by the Director-General of Forum, Hon. CID Maduabum said the Governor of Ebonyi, H.E. Dave Umahi, was illegally and immorally sitting on a PDP mandate and calls himself an APC Governor to turn truth on its head.
“Governor Umahi left PDP for APC, according to him, because of the love he has for President Buhari, among other flimsy reasons, irrespective of the maladministration and daily incidents of destruction of lives and properties currently going on in Ebonyi State and the entire country under the watch of APC
“Governor Umahi sabotaged the PDP in 2019 elections in his quest to deliver 25% to his APC benefactors. It took the determined resistance of Ebonyi people to checkmate him. It was good riddance that he subsequently left PDP for APC instead of continuing his role as an APC mole”.
They stated that on the issue of Zoning, we advise Governor Umahi to face his frustrations in APC and not drag PDP and her Governors into it.
“PDP is an independent political Party with workable structures and method of doing things. It’s not an appendage of the APC or indeed any other association or group.
“The PDP will take its decision on the issue of zoning political offices at the appropriate time.
“Even the APC has not taken any decision yet on zoning. Different groups and interests are advancing arguments to defend their positions as is required in a democracy. At the end of the day, decisions will be taken by each political party.”
The Forum said the “PDP is single-minded in its resolve to boot out the APC in 2023 and would craft strategies to achieve same in the national interest as APC currently represents an existential threat to Nigeria’s democracy and survival.
“Indeed all Nigerians have a duty and responsibility to end this long nightmare of APC misrule” the statement added.

Unknowing to her, Mixing bleach with toilet cleaner creates a poisonous gas that can cause adverse health reactions, including death.
“After the mixture, I started feeling a burning sensation in my throat and I had to leave the room because the odour was really bad too,” she said.
