For two days now, there have been exchanges of verbal blows between Governor Umahi of Ebonyi and Wike of Rivers ever since Umahi announced his defection from the PDP to APC.
Governor Umahi had on Wednesday, during an interview, issued a strong warning to Nyesome Wike to focus on the party PDP and stop demonstrating dictatorship traits by attacking him.
He warned that it would be dangerous if Wike crosses his part, saying, “Wike has called the PDP committee all kinds of unprintable names, and I have asked Gov. Wike, he is my friend, and let’s not take on ourselves because it will be very dangerous.”
Appearing on Arise News on Wednesday, Governor Nyesome Wike said that David Umahi could not threaten him, adding that he (Umahi) knows him too well and that he is not at the same level with him.
“Umahi cannot threaten me; he knows me too well. When Edo State’s case came up, I stood firm and said we could not go this way. If we go this way, we will destroy our party and are bound to lose elections,” Wike said.
“It, therefore, requires everybody to sit together to agree, and when all of us agreed, we saw the success, and that affected us in Ondo state because we could not agree.
“If you saw the way Umahi spoke earlier, you’d know he’s a man that things aren’t good with him now.
“I’m not at Umahi’s level. He said I single-handedly chose Secondus as PDP chairman. How could I? Secondus is from my state. I asked everyone to support him, and everyone agreed, including Umahi.
“Umahi has the right to move to the APC, it’s his constitutional right, but we cannot in all cases allow Umahi blackmail PDP that made him chairman of the party, deputy governor, and governor and then you now realize there is an injustice against the southeast.
“All of us in PDP know the romance of Governor Umahi with the APC. We had a meeting, and he came out to say he had an agreement with the president that he’d give the president 35 to 40 percent as the case may be.”
