Governor David Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State, on Saturday, said “he is still flying the flag of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Recall that rumours circulated on social media that Umahi had defected to the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a statement made available to 9News Nigeria by the Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Francis Nwaze, Umahi said his attention has been drawn to the news making the round in some quarters of the media, alleging that he defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Umahi described the news as a product of a figment of imagination on the part of the carriers as he was, is, and is still flying the flag of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The statement added that “It is, however, difficult to observe how people are easily persuaded to believe in fake dummies in the name of rumours.”
“If for any reason, Governor Umahi wishes to leave People Democratic Party (PDP), it will be officially communicated and can never be a product from rumour mongers.”
“The general public is advised to jettison such unfounded rumour.”
