The unconfirmed report that Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi has concluded plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) has gotten a reaction from the Presidency.

The report started making the round on Wednesday that the Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum is about to dump the PDP for the ruling APC.

Governor Umahi is expected to announce his decision today in Ebonyi State.

The presidency described the move as a welcome development, describing Umahi as the best performing Governor in the South East.

A special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media, Bashir Ahmad, in a tweet in reaction to the news, said it was only a homecoming for Umahi.

He tweeted, “When you apply its actual term, the ‘all politics is local’, His Excellency will be welcomed to our great party, the APC, a great person, one of the performing governors in the country, arguably the best in his region. It’s just a homecoming!”
