The governor had between November 20 and 21, dismissed his political appointees, boards, and commissions in the state, after his defection to ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr Alex Nnachi, a Stakeholder, described Gov. Umahi’s actions as contradictory, especially now that the people were already pleased with his defection.

“You do not force people to accept your decisions, instead you can woo them to your side,” Nnachi said.

Another stakeholder, Mr Samuel Ogodo, told NAN that the development will automatically give birth to antagonism.

Ogodo explained “if the governor wanted his political ambition to move forward and promote inclusiveness, as well as enhance service delivery in the state, there should not be any substitute to development no matter the party affiliation.
