Why no party, not even APC can win election in my state – Gov Umahi



Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has doused the speculations that he may soon dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a result of the persisting crisis rocking the party.

The governor who described the crisis in PDP as only momentary, said he would remain in the party, assuring that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other parties cannot win election in his state because “PDP has performed marvellously and cannot be arm-twisted.’’

There have been speculations that he may have to dump the PDP because of the crisis in the party in order to be able to secure a second-term in office.

But the governor speaking on Sunday during a Christmas ‘Get-Together’ he organised for the state Working Committee of the PDP including its local and zonal committee members said, “The current challenges confronting the party will not lead to its demise as it will soon fizzle out with the commitment of its dedicated members.”
He went further to say, “Anybody who believes that I would leave PDP for the All Progressives Congress or any other party is sleeping and should be woken from sleep. APC and other parties cannot win election in this state because PDP has performed marvelously and cannot be arm-twisted.’’
