Nyesom Wike of Rivers State Governor said he will not be a party to talk with Ebonyi State governor Dave Umahi who defected to All Progressives Congress
Wike insisted that Umahi took his decision to leave the PDP adding that returning talk won’t yield any result.
Wike has earlier said ‘his friend’ left because he wanted to be President contrary to his claim.
The Rivers State governor said, “As far as PDP is concerned, Umahi has left the party. Yes, we know. But the party has been saying, let’s talk to him.
“At a point, I told the Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, Hon Aminu Tambuwal. I said I will not be a party to go and talk to Umahi because I do know that what we are going to do will not achieve any results. So, he has left.”
“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,” he added.
