The governor of Ebonyi state, David Umahi has said that the state has always been the strongest PDP state from day one.
Umahi also said that his pledge to ensure that the party wins the state at the presidential poll “is beyond any compromise.”
Umahi disclosed this on Friday at a meeting with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, his campaign team, and members of the state traditional rulers council.
He said, “Ebonyi state is PDP. Ebonyi state has always been the strongest PDP state from day one. We have come of age and our eyes are wide open and let me say sir that the president is my personal friend and it has nothing to do with politics, he is a sitting president and deserves my respect.”
“That has nothing to do with politics. Let nobody bring that into politics of Ebonyi state.”
On his part, the PDP presidential candidate said he is committed to promoting unity across the country.
