The Senator representing Abia Central in the Senate, Theodore Orji, has debunked media report (not LEADERSHIP Friday) over his purported plan to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC). Orji, who is a former governor of Abia State, said he never contemplated defection to the APC, adding that the newspaper report “is completely wrong and nothing but lies.” According to a press statement issued from Senator Orji’s National Assembly office in Abuja yesterday and signed by his media adviser/legislative aide, Chief Eddie Onuzuruike, the lawmaker has on many occasions including meetings and other political gatherings stated that there are no such plans.
“In fact there is no reason for that. The PDP, our great party gave him the platform for governorship, and the senate. The same platform is ready for a second tenure. When the PDP was engulfed in crises he was strongly with the party and was instrumental to resolving the crises so why should he leave a peaceful house to Abia APC populated by his detractors.
“Senator Orji is an ardent believer in discipline and loyalty. Jumping from one party to another is not in his character. In truth, such actions do not convey seriousness and steadfastness, factors that he considers as sound attributes.
“He has emphatically debunked this news and clearly stated that there are no reason whatsoever to jump ship or dump his beloved PDP,” the statement added.
