The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the defection of Dave Umahi the Ebonyi State governor from the Party to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Reacting to the development in a statement on Tuesday, PDP said that the Ebonyi governor left the party for personal reasons which will soon be made known to Nigerians in due time.
Thanking the Ebonyi state Governor for the services he rendered to the party before his decision to move to APC, the party however urged its members to remain calm and committed to the party.
Stating that no individual is bigger than the party, the statement by PDP read:
"The @OfficialPDPNig says that the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Dave Umahi left our party for personal reasons, which Nigerians will come to know at the fullness of time.
"Our party thanks Governor Umahi for services rendered to the people of Ebonyi state, as the State Chairman of Ebonyi PDP (2003 to 2007); deputy governor of Ebonyi state (2007 to 2015) and two term governor of Ebonyi (2015 till date), all elected on the platform of the PDP.
"As we wish Governor Umahi all the best in his adventure, we call on the members of our party to remain calm and committed to the ideals of our party as no individual is bigger than the PDP."
Recall that AllNews had earlier reported that Umahi dumped PDP for the ruling APC.
