Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, while reacting to it also, said the governor had left the Peoples Democratic Party long ago.
The stakeholder of the PDP in Ekiti State and the South-West region disclosed this in a tweet on Wednesday.
Fayose 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.”
Umahi, had claimed that his decision was because of the “injustice” apportioned to the South-East region by the party, adding that the APC was the only one to protect the interest of the region in the 2023 presidential election.
