The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to speculations that Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state was set to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The reaction came same day Umahi himsef refuted the reports.
National Vice Chairman of PDP (South East), Chief Austin Umahi said that it was unthinkable that the Ebonyi Governor would defect to “a non-performing political party such as APC.”
The party chieftain urged the public to disregard the unfounded rumour.
“This is not only a mischief but orchestrated by our detractors wicked imaginations that will never come to reality”, he told Vanguard.
“It is absurd and unthinkable for anybody to fathom this wickedness bcos how could a reasonable person from South East think of joining a failed and non existent APC in the zone.
“I make bold to say that this fabricated lies should be trashed because our governor remains PDP, body, soul and spirit.
“Power to PDP as God gives us this country for rescue come 2019 general election.”
