"Every rumour heralded recently that Governor Umahi had defected into APC seemed not becoming a reality but the party cabals have never relented to fast-track the calculation to meet their target owing to Governor Dave Umahi's salable legacies since assumed power in 2015", a reliable source told our newsman.
