The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ebonyi State chapter on Monday debunked the rumours making the round on social media alleging that three PDP serving National Assembly members from the state are making plans to dump the party to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), and described it as fake news.
Recall that Ebonyi state governor, Engr David Umahi recently defected from the opposition party PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress, with none of the eight serving federal lawmakers. According to the statement signed and made available to newsmen by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Barr Silas Onu, accused the APC government in the state of fabricating the fake news to create false popularity.
The publicity Secretary described APC as a sinking ship, noting that none of it’s members would ever contemplate joining the party.
“our attention has been drawn to a lame Facebook publication by a depressed apologist of the APC government of Ebonyi State that PDP National Assembly members are set to join their sinking ship called APC. “Ebonyians are called upon to totally ignore that depressed delusion emanating from a depraved and abandoned political hack seeking attention for a possible reward from a government that thrives on lies, falsehood and insults as a strategy for governance.
“For the sake of emphasis, no serving PDP Lawmaker is interested in returning to slavery. PDP is stronger than ever and will continue to consolidate on its gains as God has redeemed us from The grip of tyranny”
