The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has never approached the state governor Dr Okezie Ikpeazu to join the party.
Recall that the Governor had described APC as a stationery car, saying that he would never dump PDP for the party.
‘Nobody has been able to convince me that there is a better party for us in Abia than the PDP. Not until that happens, I am a strong member of the PDP,’ the governor stated.
In his reaction to the statement made by the state Governor, Abia State chairman of APC, Hon Donatus Nwankpa, said nobody in the party has approached the governor to join the APC.
‘The ward, local government and zonal chairmen from where the governor comes from nor myself (Nwankpa) made any move or advance to have the governor in our party,’ Nwankpa said.
‘As such, people should not build on rumour. None of us has made any move for the governor to join our party.’
Acccording to him, the Governor joining or not joining APC is immaterial to the party.
He added that he is yet to receive any report about Ikpeazu making attempt to join the ruling party.
‘I have not made any move to have Ikpeazu in the party as well. Every politics starts from the ward. Every politics is local.’
