Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said another Governor from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), soon join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Wike who disclosed this on Wednesday during a live interview on Channels television Politics Today, however declined to name the Governor.
Reacting to Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state defection, the Rivers Governor accused his Ebonyi counterpart of anti-Party activities.
“We know he has been romancing with the APC for a long time. At a point, he admitted that he visit the Presidency at night for whatever reason, and openly identifying with our party in the day time.
“For long, Umahi has been engaged in anti-party activities openly. In 2019, he openly kicked and worked against the choice of Peter Obi as the Vice Presidential candidate. Remember that myself never supported the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate. I had preferred Aminu Tambuwal. But when Atiku emerged, I had no option but to support him.
“On the other side, Umahi had confessed that he promised President Muhammadu Buhari certain percentage of vote in Ebonyi state in 2019 elections, and he fulfilled that promise. It means that he supervised the allocation of votes in the state in favour of APC instead of working for his party, PDP.
“He also claimed that PDP refused to zone the 2023 presidential ticket to Southeast. Has APC zoned theirs to southeast? The truth is that he’s been ungrateful to the platform that made him. He would have defected before 2019 election and try his luck under APC so he can test his popularity” he said.
