Ebonyi state governor, David Umahi, claimed that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has no structure in his state.
Umahi In 2020, decamped from the PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), citing “injustice” done to the south-east.
Before leaving the party, Umahi had for once served as deputy governor and was twice elected governor on the platform of the party.
Umahi said the major opposition party cannot be considered in the political reality of the state.
In his statement he stated;
“Every state is built on the performances of the governor. I have performed and it’s not about the party, it’s about the leadership of the state,” he said.
“There is no PDP in Ebonyi state, and if you’ve witnessed our programmes of late, you’d have noticed the number of people that came out.
“So, the PDP should not even talk. They are not even second in ranking in Ebonyi state. So there’s nothing like structure.”
“We have many months to elections and we have many months to campaign,” he said.
“The first to start does not translate to the first to finish. So, the APC is a bank and they are coming up with programmes. It will soon happen.”
