Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has assured that the challenges confronting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the national level will not lead to its death.

Umahi gave the assurance during a Christmas dinner he organised for the state Working Committee of the PDP as well as the local and zonal committee members at the Government House, Abakaliki on Friday.

Umahi, who challenged the leadership of the PDP in the state to be transparent and accountable to the party members and the public, said anybody believing he (Umahi) would leave the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC) was sleeping.

“If anybody tells you that this man (Umahi) is going to APC, tell the person that he should wake up from sleep,” he said in a statement on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Emma Anya.

Stressing that the “APC does not win election in this state,” he added that since his PDP-led administration had “done very well in the state,” it cannot be arm-twisted.

“There is no Local Government Area that you will not beat your chest and say there is a road project going on. We are not building ordinary roads. We are not doing any road without asphalt and stone base,” he explained.

The Governor told the party chiefs that for them to succeed, they must avoid taking bribes and embezzling party’s funds.

He said: “If they give you money and say it is for10 people, tell them it is for 10 people. The worst thing in life is to eat the money that is supposed to go to three or four people alone. No man ever has enough. What is important is contentment and godliness.”

The state Chairman of the PDP, Onyekachi Nwebonyi, assured of their unflinching support for   Governor Umahi in justifying the mandate given to him by the people.
