Mr Francis Nwaze, the Special Assistant to Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi on Media and Publicity, has described as ‘fake’ the reports making the rounds that his principal is making contacts to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Nwaze made this known in a press statement he signed on Friday which was made available to Africa Today News, New York.
He pointed out that the publication that Umahi wants to return to PDP is a fabricated false report and should be disregarded by the reading public.
He said; ‘The attention of Ebonyi State government has been drawn to a mischievous publication made in some sections of the media that Gov. Umahi is making contacts to return to PDP.
‘Ordinarily, we wouldn’t have bothered responding to the publication, but we have freely elected to make a few clarifications to save the public, especially users of Social Media.
‘First, I like to confirm that the statement is completely false, it is aimed at painting our Governor black and causing bad blood between him and the crew members of the next level train in Ebonyi State and Nigeria at large.
‘It is worthy of note that the Governor made a landmark departure from the opposition political party out of personal conviction and freewill volition last year for the obvious irredeemable marginalization of Ndigbo.
‘Let me state that the Governor has since moved on and has made the ruling APC his home, enjoying the full compliments of being a party at the center, and does not need to even contemplate returning to PDP,’ Nweze stated.
Africa Today News, New York gathered that the viral report had claimed that Umahi and Orji Uzor Kalu have been displaced in the APC hence their plot to return to the PDP.
