President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the defection of Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi to the All Progressives Congress (APC), urging Nigerians to pay less emphasis on identity politics to enhance democratic culture.

A statement by Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, quoted Buhari as describing Umahi’s defection as “a bold move driven purely by principle rather than opportunistic motives”.

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor’s defection comes after weeks of speculation that he had taken the decision to dump the opposition party for the ruling party.

One of the reasons given by the governor for his defection is that the South East region has suffered what he describes as injustice in the PDP.

Gov. Umahi also faulted the claims that he left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to achieve his ambition of becoming the president in 2023.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rejects an increase in the pump price of fuel to N170 per liter by the All Progressives Congress (APC) government, describing it as wicked, unbearable, and unacceptable, particularly given the prevailing excruciating economic crunch already foisted on Nigerians by the Buhari administration.

The party insists that this increase in the pump price will worsen the already suffocating economic situation in the country.

“Such a hike will also be an additional log tied on the economic neck of Nigerians,” the PDP stated in a communique on Friday.
