Umahi unhappy with PDP because Atiku picked Peter Obi – Wike

 


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said Atiku Abubakar’s choice of Peter Obi as his running mate in the 2019 election got his Ebonyi counterpart, Dave Umahi upset with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Wike said with Umahi’s defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC), he should be mindful of the political future of the South-East.

The governor, in a Live broadcast on Thursday, said Umahi has shown that he is an ungrateful man.

He recalled that after the 2018 PDP convention that produced Atiku, the former Vice President consulted widely and selected Obi, a former Anambra Governor.

Wike said: “Umahi was livid because he wanted to produce or he wanted to be Vice President. You don’t choose who would be the Vice Presidential candidate of anybody. Umahi was livid. What disturbs me, why do you think that if anything comes to the South-East it must be you. Why do you think so?”

He insisted that Umahi cannot talk of injustice when he practices injustice against the South-East zone by singly installing his two younger brothers; one as the PDP Zonal Vice Chairman and the other as the Deputy State Chairman.

“If he believes in equity and justice, will he be doing such? It is because he has planted these people that the State House of Assembly had such effrontery to give the National Working Committee (NWC) ultimatum to zone presidency to the East. Where does such a thing happen? No other party has done any zoning. You can imagine the level of selfishness,” he noted.

Wike dismissed Umahi’s comment that he made PDP what it is in the region as the financier of its activities.

He noted that such a claim suggests that Governors of Abia and Enugu States are not doing anything to ensure the success of the party in the zone.

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Ngozi Nlewedim, popularly known as Erica, has berated fellow housemates, Laycon, for gossiping about her with the others. Laycon, who has a very strong feeling for Erica, seems to have been affected by the outcome of rejection as the Abia-born female housemate picked Kiddwaya over him. For this reason, Laycon has been seen at different times and locations discussing Erica and telling fellow housemates how he feels being rejected. Erica had once made it clear that while she is mentally attracted to Laycon, she is physically attracted to her lover, Kiddwaya.
