I know people might call him names, but that is the price men of principles have to pay for acting according to their conscience and convictionsโ€ President Buhari added.

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the defection of Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, to the All Progressives Congress (APC), describing it โ€œas a bold move driven purely by principle rather than opportunistic motives.โ€

Reacting to the defection, President Buhari said: โ€œI am proud of Governor David Umahi for taking this bold decision in accordance with his conscience and principles rather than any external influence or coercion.โ€

According to the President, โ€œGood governance is very important to us in the APC, and Iโ€™m glad that the governor has cited this as a major factor in his decision to join us. I urge our citizens to pay less emphasis on identity politics if we want our democracy to make a positive impact on our country.โ€

He noted that โ€œwith men like Umahi, I foresee a brighter future for our democracy because the voters will be more motivated by performance records of parties and their candidates.โ€

โ€œLet me once again; commend the boldness of Governor Umahi for taking this courageous decision in a country where principles are in short supply among many.
