…Says no individual bigger than party

By Lateef Ibrahim, Abuja

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said on Tuesday that the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Dave Umahi, left the party for personal reasons, which Nigerians will come to know at the fullness of time.
The PDP said this in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.
Engr Umahi formally decamped from PDP to APC in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital yesterday after several weeks of speculations.
The main opposition party however thanked Governor Umahi for services rendered to the people of Ebonyi state, as the State Chairman of Ebonyi PDP (2003 to 2007); deputy governor of Ebonyi state (2007 to 2015) and two term governor of Ebonyi (2015 till date), all elected on the platform of the PDP.
The PDP also wished the Governor all the best in his adventure.
The PDP however called on all its members to remain calm and committed to the ideals of our party as no individual is bigger than the PDP.
The statement by Ologbondiyan reads, “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says that the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Dave Umahi, left our party for personal reasons, which Nigerians will come to know at the fullness of time.
“Our party thanks Governor Umahi for services rendered to the people of Ebonyi state, as the State Chairman of Ebonyi PDP (2003 to 2007); deputy governor of Ebonyi state (2007 to 2015) and two term governor of Ebonyi (2015 till date), all elected on the platform of the PDP.
“As we wish Governor Umahi all the best in his adventure, we call on the members of our party to remain calm and committed to the ideals of our party as no individual is bigger than the PDP”, it said.
