Umahi replies Wike, says Buhari remains his father, boss
Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has told Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike that he is talking rubbish, insisting that he contributed so much in the making of PDP not the other way around.
Wike had in one of his recent interviews said that “Umahi has the right to move to the APC, it’s his constitutional right, but we cannot in all cases allow Umahi blackmail PDP that made him chairman of the party, deputy governor, and governor and then you now realize there is an injustice against southeast.”
But Umahi faulted Wike’s claim saying his refusal to castigate President Muhammadu Buhari who he described as his only father and boss was the reason behind his (Wike’s) outburst.
“Another one is that the PDP wants me to be castigating Mr. President. I have no other boss apart from Mr. President. And by my culture and upbringing you do not insult the elders. It’s not in my character.
“And some of them (PDP Governors) speak rubbish in the day and in the night they’re caps in hands and they start going up and down. I don’t do like that. So Mr. President remains my boss, father and boss and I’ve no regret about that,” Umahi stated.
Umahi had dumped the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress on Thursday on the premises that PDP has done injustice against southeast.”
