Defection: Wike Slams Umahi Over Defection, Allegations Against PDP, Challenges Him To A Debate

By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State carpeted Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state for his allegations against the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), following his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC), and has challenged him to a public debate to prove his allegations against his former party.

The fiery Rivers State Governor made this known on Channels Television on Wednesday, where he expressed his angst against Umahi’s claim that he left the PDP due to the injustices the south-east region had suffered over the years under the PDP, challenging the Ebonyi State Chief executive to a public debate to prove his claims.

According to him, Umahi’s statement that there is more room for consultation in the APC than in the PDP betrayed him as having been working clandestinely with the APC, adding that in as much as he wasn’t against Umahi’s presidential bid, his anger was Umahi’s resort to threats to achieve his ambition.

Wike wondered how Umahi could have suffered injustice in the PDP when he held the positions of chairman and is serving his second term as governor under the same party he was now castigating.
