The All Progressives Congress, in Enonyi State, on Friday, said that members of the Peoples Democratic Party, in the state, were merely making baseless allegations, saying they are indirectly seeking for relevance.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the APC in Enonyi State, Chief Stanley Okoro-Emegha, maintained that both Governor David Umahi and the Government, had no dealing with the PDP anymore.
According to him, “this is a laughable allegation, because Governor David Umahi is no longer in PDP and has no business whatsoever in PDP and its members. Whoever that is in PDP is there on his own and there is nothing the person is doing for Governor Umahi, in PDP. Because, he had since moved to APC and of course, party differences should not be equated with personal relationships.
“If there is anything going on between the governor and anybody, in PDP, it’s on personal grounds and that has nothing to do with party. And if there anybody saying Umahi wants to dominate both the APC and the PDP in Enonyi State, that person is making a laughable allegation.”
Speaking further, he said: “Umahi is vindicated in any of these allegations. Our interest is how to move the party to the next level, where we are headed, not these side distractions coming from the PDP.
“I am the Commissioner for Internal Security and Border Peace in Enonyi State, outside being the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the APC in the state. I trek between 1am and 3am in the morning, making sure the state is safe. I do this alone, because I know I’m doing the rightful thing.
“I have not stepped on anybody’s toe. But in this context, you see someone moving with eight Mobile Policemen and the person is still complaining of threat to his life.
“What do they want the Federal Government to do again? Ali Odefa, the Caretaker Committee National Vice Chairman of the PDP (South-East zone), moves with eight Mobile Policemen, yet complains of threat to his life. We are not interested and we want them to leave us alone, because we know they are just looking for relevance.”
