The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has disclosed yesterday that someone in his former party PDP forced him to borrow N5bn to fund the presidential campaign of the party in 2015.
Recall that ever since Umahi decamped to APC, there have been internal wranglings in his state of Ebonyi between him and the party he left from, the PDP.
Umahi, during an enlarged stakeholders meeting of the APC,) in the state said that he had to sell his properties to repay the loan.
He said, “When I was deputy governor, someone in high position from the South-east went and arranged loan of N5bn for me to fund presidential ambition of his government. And I had to sell some of my properties to pay the loan.”
Responding, the acting caretaker committee chairman of the PDP in the state, Fred Udogu, faulted the governor’s claims.
“The governor has been feeding people of the state with all manner of lies and propaganda just to tarnish the image of the PDP and its members but we are preparing.”
“Political fight is not a fight with a gun or knife but with intelligence and wisdom, so please disregard the information,” he said.
