The president of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ebonyi, Mr. Nwachukwu Eze, says that the opposition party will welcome Governor David Umahi with “open arms” if his defection claim to APC is true.
Remember that Mr. Chinedu Ogah (APC-Ikwo / Ezza South Federal Constituency) announced on Saturday that Governor Umahi had defected to the APC from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and congratulated him on making the move.
But Governor Umahi has denied the accusation.
His special assistant (SA) in media and advertising, Mr. Francis Nwaze, described the report as “a figment of the imagination of the person who is circulating”
However, Eze, the APC chairman, told Newsmen on Sunday that the party would be happy to work with Umahi.
“We will not be against you joining us, although nothing has suggested it to me or my office and none of our national leaders have communicated to us about it.
“However, we want our party to grow, spread its ideology throughout Nigeria and make Nigerians believe that it is the party to identify with,” he said.
