Former governor of Abia State, Chief Theodore Orji has opened up on his rejection by the All Progressives Congress.
A former Abia State House of Assembly Speaker, Stanley Ohajiriuka, had warned the ex-governor against joining the ruling party, insisting that the APC does not need him.
Reacting, however, Orji, who is now senator representing Abia Senatorial District, said, “I have no intention of jettisoning my relationship with the party, not now, not tomorrow. I love my party.”
According to Orji “Let me tell you, if I decide to leave my party, the party I will join will be very happy because of my antecedent.
“I have a track record of success as a civil servant and in politics; I have electoral value, unlike those who are spent forces in all ramifications of their lives. So, don’t mind them, they just want me to notice them.”
Orji said people from the South-East leaving the PDP did so for personal reasons, stressing that Nigerians could serve Nigeria, irrespective of political inclination.
“Those who are leaving the party, citing party problems as a reason, are not sincere, which is most uncharitable, especially when majority of them have benefitted hugely from it,” he said in a statement issued on Tuesday.
