Wike said with Umahi’s defection to the All
Progressives Congress (APC), he should be mindful of the political future of the South-East.
The governor, in a Live broadcast on Thursday, said Umahi has shown that he is an ungrateful man.
Wike said: “Umahi was livid because he wanted to produce or he wanted to be Vice President. You don’t choose who would be the Vice Presidential candidate of anybody. Umahi was livid. What disturbs me, why do you think that if anything comes to the South-East it must be you. Why do
you think so?”
“If he believes in equity and justice, will he be doing such? It is because he has planted these people that the State House of Assembly had such effrontery to give the National Working Committee
(NWC) ultimatum to zone presidency to the East.
Where does such a thing happen? No other party has done any zoning. You can imagine the level of selfishness,” he noted.OMOKOSHABAN
