Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ebonyi National Assembly caucus on Wednesday reacted to the defection of Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The lawmakers said no Federal lawmaker in Ebonyi State is following the governor by defecting from the PDP.
Briefing journalists at the National Assembly, the spokesperson for the group Senator Sam Egwu maintained that they remain proud card-carrying members of the PDP.
The lawmakers stressed that they consider it ‘indecent’ for the Governor to give the party conditions in a bid to secure zoning.
Although Governor Umahi has the right to belong to whatever political party he chooses, the lawmakers said he should be mindful of a court ruling that political office holders are not allowed to defect to another political party if there is no division in his original part.
