Stop this your fake threat over our people, because of your so call politics, PDP chieftain tells Umahi

Chief Julius Oji, also known as Ochiri Edda, is a Peoples Democratic Party chieftain who has asked Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi to stop making statements that incite violence against members of the Edda clan living in the state’s Afikpo South Local Government Area.

Oji, one of Edda Identity’s conveners, claims that Umahi’s recent statements, in which he stated that the clan felt threatened, were capable of igniting conflict within the communities.

At a public event in the state on Wednesday, Umahi said, among other things, that the people of Edda “didn’t do well” in the Presidential and National Assembly elections on February 25, 2023, and challenged them to do “whatever” they could to ensure his ruling All Progressives Congress wins the March 18 governorship election.

However, the steadfast PDP member said in a statement on Thursday that the governor did not have the right to force residents of the area to vote against their will on March 18, claiming that Umahi had squandered the years he spent leading the state.
