Umahi’ll Introduce Deceit, Fraud Into APC- Rep Member
A Member of the House of Representatives , Teejay Yusuf , Ijumu /Kabba- Bunu Federal Constituency, on Sunday , cautioned the All Progressives Congress against opening its doors for the Ebonyi State Governor , David Umahi.
The lawmaker gave the words of caution in a Facebook post on Sunday .
Yusuf said , Umahi ’ s coming into the ruling party was billed to dent its image , adding, “ Any political office holder who is in the habit of arresting , suppressing and banning journalists is not morally fit to be in the APC. ”
He further said , “ Umahi is a dictator ; he is deceitful and has from to time shown that he hates democratic tendencies . Allowing such a person into the party is like introducing deceit , dictatorship and other anti -democratic tendencies into the APC .
“ This is a leader who doesn’t want freedom of the press and has from time to time arrested , threatened and banned journalists in his state . Such cannot be a part of APC; he is deceitful and dictatorial . ”
However , an Ebonyi State leader of the APC, Sen . Julius Ucha, dismissed Yusuf ’ s concerns. He said , Umahi will be a great asset to the APC and the people of the South – East zone .
Ucha said , “ The Lawmaker, Hon . Teejay Yusuf , is just funny . How can he say that APC is inheriting their problem when the PDP has been sending delegations to help stop Umahi from joining APC? Umahi is a great asset to APC.
“ His achievement is a veritable tool of marketing and advertisement for APC.
