Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State who formally announced his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday November 17, has disclosed that his only sin in his former party was not castigating President Buhari.
Umahi averred that he will never do such because that is his family’s character. He added that nobody either in APC or PDP will ever say he leaked any information.
The Governor said;
“Every man runs his destiny. One thing I have promised is that I will never castigate PDP; just like in PDP, my only sin is that I refused to castigate Mr President and till thy kingdom come, I will not do that because that is my family character.
“But those who don’t have character, they were very suspicious of me because I don’t castigate the President, that I could be leaking information of PDP.
“What nonsense is that? I came from a known family and a place where there is character. So, I have got a character; nobody either in APC or PDP will say that whoever discusses anything, I have to go and leak it. To leak it for what? Is it for money, is it for fame?”
Umahi who stated that he has no regret, affirmed that he is contended with being a two-term governor.
“Let it be known to all that nobody promised me anything, let it be known to all that I moved because of injustice, and I have no regret about that.
“Some people say I will regret this movement, I laugh at them; as if they saw God, as if they are my God. I am satisfied being a businessman, I am satisfied doing my businesses and that is all.”
