Former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, in his reaction to the defection of Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, said that the governor had since left the PDP even before his official exit.
Umahi had alleged that he was leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because of the injustice of the party against the people of the South-East despite their loyalty to the party since 1999.
Fayose however noted that Umahi’s defection had nothing to do with the interest of the Igbo people.
“Gov Umahi defected to APC long ago before this unjustifiable move, which clearly has nothing to do with the interest of the Igbo nation.
“This is a reflection of the type of leadership our country parades.
“Though his action dampens hope for liberation, but I’m sure Nigerians will laugh last because sometimes, it will appear to have gotten so bad before it will begin to get better.”
