Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken on the defection of Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State.

Governor Umahi defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Reacting to Umahi’s defection on Thursday, November 19, Buhari in a tweet commended the governor’s action, saying he took a bold step where others failed to do so.

The president said that Umahi has satisfied his conscience and principles without bordering on what people would say about him.

He also advised the governor not to be deterred by people’s criticisms, adding that name callings and abuses are the price men of principle have to pay for acting according to their conscience and convictions.

He said: “I commend his boldness for taking this courageous decision in a country where principles are in short supply among many. I know people might call him names, but that is the price men of principle have to pay for acting according to their conscience and convictions.”

Meanwhile, several people have described Umahi’s action as a betrayal of trust reposed on him by the people of Ebonyi state and the PDP.
