The former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo has denied reports he has left the PDP for APC.
According to him ” while developments in PDP is embarrassing and unexciting I am yet to dump the PDP”
Reports had listed the decampees to the APC as a former Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr Emeka Worgu and former House of Representatives Speaker, Agunwa Anakwe, Senators Emma Agboti, Chris Adighije, Nkechi Nwogu and Ifeanyi Ararume.
Dr. Nwodo, a pioneer National Secretary of PDP and former Governor of old Enugu states said that its 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”.
Dr 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.
