The former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo has denied media reports that he has dumped the PDP for the All Progressive Congress.
The media has been awash with reports that Dr Nwodo and other prominent members of the PDP from the east have joined the APC. But in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, Dr Nwodo said though some “developments in PDP is (sic) embarrassing and unexciting”, he is yet to dump the party.
He noted that it was “improper for the media to stand merely on my wife being present at a meeting that I was not, to conclude that I have joined the APC, disregarding the fact that my wife as an adult has her own political life.
“As one of the founding fathers of PDP who has held the highest office in the party, I know the statutory procedure of resigning and would willingly do that if necessary” he reiterated.
Dr Nwodo said although a number of issues within PDP remains embarrassing to the founding fathers, the truth is that am still a member of the PDP and has not joined the APC.
He urged his numerous supporters across the country particularly, in Enugu state to disregard the purported story as his political direction would not be hidden if the need arises.
