Governor David Umahi Monday said that Ebonyi people would jettison Labour Party and vote for the All Progressives Congress
This was the Governor’s reaction to the growing popularity of the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the South-east zone.
Mr. Umahi said that the APC was instrumental to the infrastructural and economic development of the state and the people would identify with it at all time.
“Let the states which the Labour or any other party helped vote for it as Ebonyi has been liberated and risen.
“The APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, started with one state and used it to liberate his people.
“We should do the same in Ebonyi and make people negotiate with us with our massive number of votes,” he said.
The Governor defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC) in 2020.
Justifying his defection, Umahi said he joined APC because of “obedience to God’s will” and respect for President Muhammadu Buhari.
