‘PDP architect of own downfall, not governor Umahi’
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been urged to desist from “ceaseless media attacks” on Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi “as if he is the only person that defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).”
This was contained in a statement, yesterday, by Ebonyi State Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Orji Uchenna Orji.
The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a six-paragraph press release credited to PDP Governors’ Forum and authored by its Director General (DG), C.I.D. Maduabum, dated September 18, 2021.
“We find it instructive to register that delegating a staff of PDP to issue a press release against a well seated governor vindicates public judgment that PDP as presently constituted has no intrinsic political value and altruistic existential relevance.
“It is partisan for a DG of a political party to speak derogatorily, abusively and distortedly of the person and achievements of a governor who has distinguished himself as a leadership reference point in democratic governance.”
“We will rather demand that the DG of PDP Governors’ Forum visits Ebonyi State soonest to be a witness to the wonderful exploits of the Umahi administration. It is crystal clear that since Governor Umahi left the PDP, the party has continued deteriorating in strength and character.
“It is manifestly clear that his response to the national burning issue of PDP’s zoning of the Presidency, as challenged by our dear governor, is absolutely evasive and thus unwittingly begging the question. The DG of PDP Governors’ Forum, his principals and their other agents should leave our dear governor out of the forewarned woes of the party.”
