The PDP governor of Rivers State, Mr Nyesom Wike has said another governor from the party is set to join Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State Governor in the All Progressives Congress.
Wike on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Wednesday said Umahi had always been disloyal to the PDP.
He said, “I can tell you there is one PDP governor that will leave. He is not leaving because of anything but he will come up with an excuse.
“The point is that these are the people who have been playing anti-party, who have been romancing with the APC in the night and coming to the PDP in the daytime. My problem with our party is that when you speak the truth, they will want to crucify you. I have raised this issue several times.”
Wike who refused to reveal the identity of the PDP governor planning to defect, said, “I won’t tell you that. But you journalists know.”
He added, “All of us are aware that Governor Umahi has been romancing with APC for long. We had a virtual meeting of PDP governors. I have never seen that in my life.
“Governor Umahi in that meeting, to the surprise of many governors, said ‘there is nothing anybody can do to stop me’. I promised President Buhari I would give him 35 per cent votes’.
“I never knew that people never voted in Ebonyi; that votes were allocated and Governor Umahi determined who gets what percentage.”
