Streams State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said Atiku Abubakar’s decision of Peter Obi as his running mate in the 2019 political race got his Ebonyi partner, Dave Umahi annoyed with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Wike said with Umahi’s absconding to the All Progressives Congress (APC), he ought to be aware of the political fate of the South-East.
The lead representative, in a Live transmission on Thursday, said Umahi has indicated that he is an unreasonable man.
He reviewed that after the 2018 PDP show that created Atiku, the previous Vice President counseled broadly and chose Obi, a previous Anambra Governor.
Wike stated: “Umahi was incensed on the grounds that he needed to deliver or he needed to be Vice President. You don’t pick who might be the Vice Presidential applicant of anyone. Umahi was enraged. What upsets me, for what reason do you imagine that on the off chance that anything goes toward the South-East it must be you. For what reason do you suspect as much?”
He demanded that Umahi can’t discuss unfairness when he rehearses foul play against the South-East zone by separately introducing his two more youthful siblings; one as the PDP Zonal Vice Chairman and the different as the Deputy State Chairman.
“In the event that he trusts in value and equity, will he do such? It is on the grounds that he has planted these individuals that the State House of Assembly had such impudence to give the National Working Committee (NWC) final proposal to zone administration toward the East. Where does something like this occur? No other gathering has done any drafting. You can envision the degree of childishness,” he noted.
Wike excused Umahi’s remark that he made PDP what it is in the locale as the lender of its exercises.
He noticed that such a case proposes that Governors of Abia and Enugu States are not effectively guarantee the achievement of the gathering in the zone.
