Former Governor of Anambra State Peter Obi has lent his voice to the defection of Governor Dave Umahi to the All Progressives Congress, APC from PDP.
Acccording to him, Umahi’s defection has no economic value to the average Nigerian
Reacting to the matter on on Arise Television yesterday, Obi said that his defection has not made any economic impact in the lives of Nigerians.
He urged Nigerians not to be distracted by Umahi’s defection.
According to Obi: “How many people have been pulled out of poverty by Umahi’s defection? Will Nigeria exit recession because Umahi left PDP?
“What economic value does Umahi’s defection to APC have on the average Nigerian on the street who is struggling to put food on their table?
“We must not be distracted by political movements at this time. Anyone is free to belong to any political party. Our common focus should be saving our economy and making our governance fruitful and productive.”
