2015 Guber: 'How can I Decamp from PDP?' – UOU Debunks Joining APC

uou
Mr. Umana Okon Umana, has described as false his
rumoured defection to the All Progressive Congress.
Umana in an answer to a question by the
journalists, who were at the Ibom Airport when he
arrived from Abuja, he was still fully and totally in
the race.
“How can I decamp from the PDP? That is
absolutely false. You have heard, our leader,
Atuekong Don Etiebiet, who informed us that as for
as the NWC of the party is concerned, every aspirant
from every party of A’íbom state will be allowed to
contest the governorship primaries, I want to stand
here to say that, I’m fully and totally in the race and
that I expect that my supporters will participate fully
in the wards congress which is coming up this
Saturday. The rumour was absolutely false. I had
collected my expression of interest and nomination
forms, which I will be returning to the headquarters
in Abuja by next week. I am totally in the race”,
Umana responded.
He called on his supporters to disregard rumours
and not to entertain it regardless of where it comes
from. “We know that the party will do the right thing,
and the right thing will be to present the most
popular candidate for the upcoming election. That is
the only way the PDP will be able to win the 2015
general election”, he said.
Reacting to the question how he felt on first
receiving the statement, the governorship hopeful
said, “I was not shaken because I had made
contacts with the party and the party had assured
me of a level playing field and that the statement
that was issued did not reflect the correct position
of the NWC. This has been corroborated by the
member of our Board of Trustee, Atuekong Don
Etiebiet, so the point is that I am totally in the race,
nothing has changed”
