President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the defection of Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State to the APC.
Buhari, while reacting in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, described the action “as a bold move driven purely by principle rather than opportunistic motives.
“I am proud of Governor David Umahi for taking this bold decision in accordance with his conscience and principles rather than any external influence or coercion.
“Good governance is very important to us in the APC, and I’m glad that the governor has cited this as a major factor in his decision to join us. I urge our citizens to pay less emphasis on identity politics if we want our democracy to make a positive impact on our country,” he said.
