The National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, southeast zone, Chief Ali Odefa over the weekend pointed out that there was no rancour or violence in their party before Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State decamped to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Odefa made this submission while speaking to journalists at his country home in Oshiri community, Onicha Local Government Area of the state shortly after the ward congress of the party in their area.
He noted that the exercise was orderly and peacefully conducted adding that the party will continue to maintain equity, justice, and fairness while harmonising all political positions in PDP in the state.
‘Everybody is being carried along, things are orderly and equitably shared. The problem arises when people don’t know what they are doing.
‘The Congress in Ebonyi State is very peaceful because everything is discussed, everybody is carried along there’s no rancor in the state.
We harmonized, everywhere is harmonized we are not expecting any skirmishes.
‘We zoned PDP chairmanship to Ebonyi South and like you heard the state chairman say, the governorship has been zoned to the Abakaliki Bloc, that way everything is done peacefully.
‘The present governor (Umahi) before he left to APC came on the platter of equity, justice, and fairness, so we want to maintain that equity and fairness in all our political doings that way rancor and violence will drastically reduce. We are using option A4,’ he said.
