President Buhari commends Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi over decision to defect to the APC


President Muhammadu Buhari has commended Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, describing his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a bold decision.

The President disclosed this in a tweet on his official handle @MBuhari. 

He noted that governor Umahi’s decision was in accordance with his conscience.

President Buhari had earlier in a statement on Wednesday lauded Umahi’s decision to join the APC. He added that good governance was very important to the APC, and was glad that the governor had cited that, as a major factor in his decision to join the party.

He urged citizens to pay less emphasis on identity politics if they want the country’s democracy to make a positive impact on the nation.
