Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, has denied reports that he has dumped the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nwodo said while developments in PDP is embarrassing and unexciting, he was yet to dump the party. Nwodo, a former Governor of the old Enugu State, said it was improper for people to conclude that since his wife was present at a meeting where he was conspicuously absent, he had joined the APC disregarding the fact that his wife as an adult, and 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 said.
Nwodo said although a number of issues within PDP remains embarrassing to the founding fathers, the truth is that “ I am still a member of the PDP and has not joined the APC.”
The former governor then 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.
