The National Vice-Chairman (South East) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Austin Umahi has described those behind the emergence of a new splinter group of the party as ‘Non-entities’.
Umahi, who spoke to Sun, highlighted that the faction could be a distraction from the Ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to derail the PDP from its efforts towards 2019.
“My dear brother, the truth of the matter is that the PDP is repositioned. And what is repositioning? It is about re-engineering, it is about rebranding, and it is about getting it right where we have missed it. And I can assure you that the successful convention is a big plus and it has jumpstarted us because as we are talking today we have hit the ground running.
Well, those are the people that want to be noticed. First and foremost, those of them that answer Igbo names; whether they are Hausa and they are bearing Igbo names I do not know, but I had to contact each and every one of them. I wanted to know the reasons for this kind of attitude. And I saw that everything was geared towards ‘notice me.’ They just wanted recognition. They don’t have anything.”
