2023: Stop Lying, You Want to Be President In APC – Wike Tells Umahi



Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has been accused of lying about the reason for leaving the Peoples Democratic Party.

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, said Umahi’s quest to be All Progressives Congress presidential candidate and not alleged injustice meted on the South-East by the Peoples Democratic Party forced him to dump the PDP for APC.

According to Independent Nigeria, Wike said committed members of the PDP were not surprised that Governor Umahi on Tuesday formally defected to the APC, which he has for a while been fraternising with.

Governor Wike, said ordinarily he would not have been perturbed by Umahi’s decision to defect to the APC, but, he felt offended by his attempt to justify his decision on the purported injustice meted on the South-East by the PDP.

The Rivers State governor accused Umahi of being unfair to the PDP which gave him governorship ticket in 2015 against all odds, and repeated same feat in 2019.

He noted that while Umahi has a right to move to the APC, but for him to attempt to blackmail the PDP and paint it in a bad light was mischievous and unacceptable.

“My friend, Umahi wants to be president. There is no problem about that. You have a right to be president. Nobody can stop you. You are educated. You have been a governor for two terms, so you are qualified to say I want to be president of Nigeria. But, that does not mean, that you have to blackmail your party, and tell lies to the people you are leaving the party because of the injustice meted against the South-East, that is not correct.”

Governor Wike, who demanded that Umahi should retract the statement that the PDP has not been fair to the South-East, argued that under the PDP, the South East has produced Senate Presidents; National Vice Chairman of the PDP and Secretary to the Federal Government.

He said it was erroneous for Umahi to accuse PDP of injustice, when he had unilaterally imposed his younger brother as South-East zonal Vice Chairman of the PDP.

“In life, power is sweet, but conscience is important. It is most offensive and insulting for a man to lie against his party because of power.”

The governor said though APC has not yet told Nigerians where it will zone its presidential ticket, Umahi presumptuous move might be too hasty and will ruin him politically.

According to him, assuming the APC decides to zone its presidential ticket to the South East where the party has no formidable base, what is the guarantee that Umahi will secure the ticket.

“My reaction to Governor Umahi’s defection is not that he has no right to defect, but to say he is defecting because of injustice meted to the South East that is insulting to the South East.”

The Governor urged the National Working Committee and the National Executive Committee of the PDP to take decisive steps to ensure that PDP does not die in Ebonyi State.

Shatta Michy has given a quick reply to AJ Poundz for saying she’s not serious just because she has broken up with Shatta Wale.

AJ Poundz, however, in her statements pointed out that Shatta Michy is not serious to have left Wale after all these years.

Reacting to AJ Poundz statements, Michy said AJ Poundz shouldn’t project her fears on her, establishing that the Presenter is not wiser than God whom she listens to and gives her ideas.

Michy again blasted the Onua FM Presenter to focus her strengths on breastfeeding her child instead of poking her nose in her issues.

More to the point, Shatta Wale’s baby mama revealed that leaving Shatta is subtly the best decision as she has been able to build two houses and even enrolled herself into a Law school.

Michy, on social media as a reply to AJ Poundz wrote; “Dear @ajpoundz_gh ,pls don’t project your fears on me. My only advisor was God(intuition) & you’re not wiser than Him sis. It’s cuz of advisors like you that women are stuck in unfulfilling relationships. The fact that I built something with someone doesn’t mean he owes me, let’s not feel entitled. If I could for someone, I can equally do same & more for myself with the help of God.

For a girl that left all her belongings behind to acquiring 2 houses in less than 2 years of being single , enrolled myself in law school amongst other blessings, me sef I shock give God(In His time He makes all things beautiful) & I’m really enjoying His endless wonders . I doubt you’re done breastfeeding your baby, focus on that? #love #light.”
