Governor of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu has denied reports that speaks of his intention to defect to the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking in a radio program, The Platform last weekend as reported by Punch Newspapers, Ikpeazu said he sees no reason why he should leave the PDP.
The governor said, “I do not see any reason why I should leave the PDP for any other political party. The music of politics as it plays differs from one state to another. Here in Abia, the people are comfortable with the PDP and I think the aspirations of Ndi Abia will be met and achieved under the platform of the PDP”.
He added that “nobody has been able to convince me that there is a better party for us here in Abia than the PDP. I am a strong member of the PDP and a leader in the party. In fact, I am the Deputy Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum”.
