The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has denied the rumour making the rounds that former Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has planned to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The remark was made on behalf of the former Governor by Ogubundu Nwadike, Imo PDP Publicity Secretary.
In his words, he said it was also totally untrue that some PDP bigwigs including the ex-Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, were set to decamp.
He said that it is not true because Ihedioha is a life member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of PDP.
“His integrity quotient has been tested and proven. We are not oblivious of the clandestine efforts by fifth columnists who have perpetually lost sleep over the goodwill, respect and massive support Rt. Hon. Ihedioha enjoys in the state and across the country.
“The good news is that the sponsors of the joke are not unknown to Imolites and Nigerians. Without any need to yet publish their identities, we will only assure them that their pettiness is inconsequential.”
Nwadike gave the assurance that the former Governor is still with PDP and will remain forever in PDP
“We are expecting more to follow soon. Imo PDP under the watch of Engr. Charles C. Ugwuh is intact and there is no crack or leakage anywhere. Power to the people!”, the statement added.
