The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi dumped the Peoples Democratic Party PDP for the All Progressives Congress APC along with other PDP Governors. Governor David Umahi dumped the PDP for APC because of many reasons that best known to him. Among the Governors that also dump PDP for APC are Governor Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers State and the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.
There are so many reasons why Umahi dumped the PDP for APC. Among what Governor Umahi gave as excuse to dump PDP for APC is that the Southern region was being marginalised. Though, the Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyesome Wike kicked against what Governor David Umahi gave as excuse. Governor Wike made it known to the Public that Umahi's defection to APC was Personal and not for the region as claimed by Governor Umahi. He stated that Governor Umahi is interested to contest 2023 Presidential race.
The fact is that, what Governor David Umahi said about the PDP that made him to dump PDP for APC is about to happen. The reason is that the zoning system of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP doesn't seem to favour the South in 2023. Though, Governor Ugwuanyi Led Committee of the PDP has not announced the outcome of the Committee set by the Party Leaders ahead the National Convention of the Party.
Governor Wike accusation on Governor David Umahi that his defection to APC was based on his Personal ambition might be wrong because what is about to happen in PDP due to zoning system of Party. The South should be the next region that will take the mantle of Leadership in the Country. The reason is that President Muhammadu Buhari will complete his eight years tenure by 2023.
Meanwhile, the Northerners are not ready to concede Presidential ticket to Southern region in 2023. The Northerners claimed that Late President Yar'adua only spent three years as President. Therefore, If the Presidency is not zoned to the South, especially to southeast, it means what Governor Umahi gave as excuse to dump PDP for APC that the South were marginalised is coming to reality.
