Ebonyi State governor, David Umahi has reacted to the allegations made by the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caretaker Chairman, Chief Fred Udogu that he is sending thugs after him.
Umahi reacting through his Special Assistant on Media, Francis Nwaza said;
“You see these things people do this days, trying to drag the name of a popular person into their misfortune is bad. People do politics over everything. If you are known for unholy character, must you drag the name of a governor to take cover.”
“He said that the governor is sending thugs, how will people be making allegations without evidence? What is the proof that the governor sent somebody? The governor is very busy with the development of the state and as I speak with you now, the governor was on inspection today.”
“He is focused on the development of the state and has no time for this kind talk. Who is he that the governor will send somebody to go and attack? There is no such thing and it never happened. People should discard such statement from people who are just looking for popularity. Such a thing never happened.”
“The governor is APC and APC is the governor, and he is so focused. Maybe they are having internal crisis or not. It is their problem and why are they dragging the name of the governor into it?”
