BreakingTimes findings revealed that the meeting may be connected with Governor Dave Umahi’s defection to the All Progressive Congress (APC) and threat that other PDP governors will follow.
Umahi said his decision was a protest against the PDP on the injustice meted on the South-east, but the party said that Umahi’s decision has nothing to do with activities going on in the party but his personal decision.
