Following the reactions trailing the defection of Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congressive, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has suggested that one more governor will leave the party.
During an appearance on Politics today, Wike said ” I can tell you, there is one PDP Governor that will leave”.
He declined to give the name of the governor or when he will leave the party.
Just like Umahi, he expects the governor to “come up with another excuse” when giving reasons for his defections.
“The point is that these are the people who have been playing anti-party politics. They will be romancing with the APC in the night and coming out to PDP in the day time,” he said.
Anti-party activities have bothered Governor Wike for some time but he does not think the PDP is taking the problem as seriously as it should.
“My problem with our party is that when you speak the truth, they want to crucify you. I have raised this issue severally and severally and severally.”
Dave’s defection has created a political storm in the region, the number of PDP governors in South East has been reduced to two (Abia and Enugu). The APC controls Imo and now Ebonyi, while APGA holds sway in Anambra.
