A FORMER EBONYI COMMISSIONER ACCUSES DAVE UMAHI OF PAROCHIAL POLITICS
August 2, 2022
A former commissioner for information and state orientation in Ebonyi state, Abia Onyike, who is the media director Ifeanyi– Odii campaign organisation for the 2023 governorship election under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Ebonyi State has said for Governor David Umahi to say there is no other political party in Ebonyi except the All Progressive Congress (APC) is Umahi’s parochial framework for analyzing political trends.
Onyike who told journalist this in Ebonyi state says Umahi has no single training in the theory and practice of politics and sounds very mechanical any time he delves into political analysis as Umahi does not know that scoring a 100% in an election is alien to democratic political culture saying such a thing can only happen under one-party communist systems.
Our correspondent in Ebonyi state, Emmanuel Nnaji, reports that Onyike says Umahi has a few months to leave office. And very soon his anti-democratic mentality will vanish with him from the Ebonyi state political landscape.
