Former Ekiti State Governor , Ayodele Fayose , has said Ebonyi State Governor , Dave Umahi , left the Peoples Democratic Party long ago before his official exit this week .

Fayose , who is a stakeholder of the PDP in Ekiti State and the South – West region, stated this in a tweet on Wednesday .
Controversy continues to trail the defection of Umahi from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress as stakeholders of both parties exchange verbal attacks .
Umahi , a longtime member of the PDP , had claimed he defected because of the “ injustice ” meted to the South – East region by the party, adding that the APC would protect the interest of the region in the 2023 presidential election .

But Fayose said Umahi ’s decision was unconnected to the interest of the Igbo people .
He wrote , “ Gov Umahi defected to APC long ago before this unjustifiable move , which clearly has nothing to do with the interest of the Igbo nation .

“ This is a reflection of the type of leadership our country parades.
“ Though his action dampens hope for liberation , but I ’m sure Nigerians will laugh last because sometimes , it will appear to have gotten so bad before it will begin to get better . ”
