The Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has described his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, as a dictator whose actions are ‘destroying’ the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr Umahi was reacting to a statement credited to Mr Wike who said he (Umahi) left the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) because of his desperation to be president of the country in 2023.

Mr Umahi spoke on an Arise TV interview programme on Wednesday.

He said Mr Wike’s “dictatorial tendencies and overbearing influence on the party’s affairs had made other governors to be unhappy with him”.

He warned Mr Wike to desist from attacking him “as it would be very dangerous if both of them continue attacking each other.”

Mr Umahi said: “I refused to join issues with Wike because he is my friend. But Wike must know that he is a dictator. Wike must know that one person cannot be called a crowd. Wike must know that a lot of governors in PDP are not very happy with him. He remote controls the party.

“He (Wike) said that I made my brother the Vice Chairman. I fund the PDP South-east from A to Z. And he has forgotten that he singlehandedly made Secondus the (PDP) Chairman. He has forgotten that he wanted to impose one of his own as minority leader of the house.

“There is nothing that happens in PDP without his authorisation. He once said that PDP National Working Committee members are beggars and bribe takers. I have asked him that let’s not take on ourselves or else it will be very dangerous.

“So let’s us face the party, the party does not belong to him. And this is by no means personal and he is demonstrating the dictatorial tendencies in him by taking on me, a fellow governor. And that is very shameful.”

Mr Umahi warned that more governors would leave the PDP fold “unless there is a change in the mode of doing things in the PDP”.

Wike remote-controlling PDP
The Ebonyi governor also accused his Rivers counterpart of ‘remote-controlling’ the PDP.

“APC does more consultation. Anybody can contravene this that PDP working committee is being remote-controlled and that is the truth and it is very dangerous and all the governors know that.

“You (Wike) cannot stay in your state and you will be remote-controlling what happens in other states. Unless that changes you will see a lot of governors leaving the party,” he warned.

He, however, said “he will be a happy man if a president of South-east is elected in 2023 even if that person is not him.”

PREMIUM TIMES reported how Mr Umahi recently said he left the opposition party because it had not been fair to his region in the allotment of political offices, especially the presidency.

The party had dismissed his claim noting that the region, including Mr Umahi, had occupied many top positions since 1999.

Umahi defeated a serving minister backed by incumbent governor to grab PDP guber ticket.
Wike defeated his political Ally/godfather.

Wike the dictator, once the closest ally of igbo, now their arch enemy.


All this is playing to the benefit of APC in 2023, is like PDP will be too weak to put up a serious contest in 2023.

these guys fail to know the politics to play.
Wike has messed up his political career
Umahi too has messed up his political Career.

they fail to take into cognizance their political terrain before making moves.
the south east as a whole is a death ground for anyone that carries the broom.
and Wike turned on Ipobs who are the most vocal Igbo folks, and they will take it upon themselves to do everything to thwart him politically.

Wike will kill PDP.

The guy is an arrogant bunkon.

He has the most useless PDP chairman ever in his pocket.

I have never seen an opposition keep quiet when the country is drifting into abyss.

All they do is issue statement which a clerk writes and they send to press.

Remember how APC in 2014 was all over the press mounting pressure on GEJ, Matching in Abuja. Granting international conferences and holding symposiums.

If PDP wins 2023 it will be a miracle.

Both umahi and wike are MAD

What wike said of umahi is right. Umahi left for APC not for the interest of the SE region but for pursuit of personal political interest and ambition. His reason of PDP not wanting to field a SE candidate is all hogwash because the aPC he ran to will also not zone the presidency to the SE. For over 3years now umahi has been PDP by day and APC at night, so its good riddance

What umahi said of wike is also true. Wike is an arrogant punk who sees himself as the kinmaker of the PDP. His dictatorial tendencies can be seen in the way he invited soldiers to kill igbos in obigbo without remorse. He surely has a date with history amd karma

Las...las non of these two go smell the presidency or vice in 2023, reason they are both mad

cool



For Ibo that want to run their mouth any how, just remember you have least PVC , and least party delegates in APC and PDP


To make 2023 work you Ibos need friends not enemies, Umahi is building a bridge for 2023 or 2027, you either support him or ignore him as a brother
