The impasse generated by the said decamping of the governor of Ebonyi state, Engr. Dave Umahi, PDP to APC has reached another level as the youth wing of Apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide headed by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro has stated that the Igbo as a people have decided to dump the People’s Democratic Party, PDP for the All progressives Congress, APC ahead of the 2023 Presidential Elections.
The group in a statement described a meeting between the National Leadership of PDP led by Prince Uche Secondus and the South-east Governors Forum Chairman and Ebonyi State Governor, Engr Dave Umahi, as a desperate bid to convince the governor to shelve his decision to leave the party; calling the meeting the ‘last kick of a dying horse’.
The meeting which held at the Ebonyi State Liaison office Abuja was also described as ‘a gathering of vultures to continue to rape Igbo votes unjustly’.
The group accused the party of scheming to go against the Zoning Formula enshrined in its constitution that favors the Southeast to produce the 2023 presidential ticket and consequently produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s Successor in 2023.
‘Southeast Governors should decamp to APC without delay, as PDP Leadership deceptive visit to Umahi was an affirmative evidence that PDP is already jittery of losing Igbo votes but it’s too late for PDP, as Igbos decision of abandoning PDP is irreversible and final verdicts of Igbo Nation.’ the statement read.
