Governor Elechi Shuns PDP National Convention, May Defect to APC Soon
Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief Martin Elechi, was conspicuously absent at the Peoples Democratic Party national convention in Abuja on Wednesday.
He was said to be angry with the national leadership of the party for colluding with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim and a former Governor of the state, Dr. Sam Egwu, to deny him the opportunity of chosen his successor.
Anyim, Egwu with the connivance of Mu’azu, had succeeded in making Dave Umahi, the deputy governor, as the PDP governorship candidate in 2015.
Elechi, however, wanted a former Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, as his successor.
It was learnt that Anyim and other political enemies of the governor informed the President of their plot before they executed it.
Unconfirmed reports said that the governor was already discussing with the national leadership of the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress on terms for his possible defection.
