The former presidential running mate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi, has reacted to the defection of Governor Dave Umahi to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He insisted that Dave Umahi’s defection has no economic value to the average Nigerian citizens.
Speaking on Arise Television yesterday, Peter Obi wondered how many lives Dave Umahi had impacted economically during his decamping to APC.
Peter Obi, who is the former Anambra State governor, charged Nigerians not to be distracted by Dave Umahi’s defection.
His words read: “How many people have been pulled out of poverty by Umahi’s defection? Will Nigeria exit recession because Umahi left PDP?
“What economic value does Umahi’s defection to APC have on the average Nigerian on the street who is struggling to put food on their table?
“We must not be distracted by political movements at this time. Anyone is free to belong to any political party. Our common focus should be saving our economy and making our governance fruitful and productive.”
Recall that Dave Umahi had recently defected from Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressive Congress.
He had explained that his defection was due to PDP’s alleged marginalization of the Southeast.
