The Senator representing Bayelsa East at the National Assembly, Ben Murray Bruce, has cautioned the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi against creating tension in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Ben Bruce said the party does not need anyone to jinx the effort of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, who he believes was doing his best to give the PDP victory in 2019.

Governor Umahi had yesterday explained that although he was not against the choice of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, as the running mate of Atiku, but the fact such decision should have been made by party stakeholders in the South-East.

He lamented that Obi was chosen by leaders from other regions, lamenting also that no one from his state was in the list of five men shortlisted for the position.
