Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi State, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha, has described the continuous attack on Governor David Umahi as a sign of frustration and greatest nightmare of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in the state.
Emegha made the assertion while briefing newsmen on the PDP’s recent attack on the governor in Abakakili, the capital city of Ebonyi State.
He explained thaDavid Umahi t the PDP had no clue on how to be an opposition political party, hence Governor David Umahi dominated their factional state executive committee meeting on 17th December, 2021.
“It is most pathetic that Ebonyi PDP hardly gathers anywhere without mentioning the name of the governor of Ebonyi State, His Excellency, Engr David Nweze Umahi. And this is a clear indication that they have been suffering and feeling the exit of Governor Umahi from their evil enclave. I laughed at them when I read online the invectives spewed on the governor by a baby factional Chairman of the PDP in Ebonyi, Mr Toochukwu Okorie during the meeting.
“The accusation of running a cruel and brutish government is baseless as Governor Umahi is the most democratic governor in the country. His empathetic, humane and altruistic nature has endeared him to many. For instance, he won the best performing governor’s award in 2019 from SUN Newspaper. He also won the 2019 Human Rights Award, just to mention but a few.
Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha who appreciated the PDP for acknowledging that they are deeply troubled by the governor’s exit from their party wondered how the same party will win election in 2023. He assured them that his party’s accomplishments from 2015 till date have already forced them into extinction.
“What Ebonyi PDP should understand is that Umahi is a visionary leader and no amount of their cries would make him go back to Egypt. Umahi is that great leader an American professional speaker, Pastor John C. Maxwell, talked about: he “knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”. He knew that the way to the liberation of Ndigbo is the APC. He knew that connecting to the mainstream of Nigerian politics is a panacea to the marginalisation of Ndigbo.
“The frustration and confusion in PDP for losing Umahi is why the party’s stakeholders have been attacking him. As a focused leader, he never got distracted but rather promised to be punishing his detractors with gigantic projects in the interest of all Ebonyians, and he has kept to his promise.
“Essentially, Umahi is the one who collapsed PDP in the country. Immediately he left the party as the pillar, Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River joined him. Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State joined too. So many National Assembly members and State Assembly members in different states equally defected. They all defected with their teeming supporters.
“I therefore enjoin the good people of Ebonyi State to disregard any accusation coming from Ebonyi PDP against our award winning governor, as the PDP has gone into oblivion.”
