Although PDP is not exciting, I have not defected to APC – Nwodo


Erstwhile National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and former Governor of old Enugu state, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo has noted that inasmuch as happenings in the party is “embarrassing and unexciting”, he has not ditched the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The media was yesterday awash with reports that prominent politicians in the South-East including the immediate past Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr Emeka Worgu and former Speaker, House of Representatives, Agunwa Anakwe, Senate Jim Nwobodo, Ifeanyi Ararume were received into the APC by the national vice-chairman and convener of the meeting, Emma Eneukwu. Although Nwodo was not present at the meeting, his wife Dorothy, was said to have represented him.


But in a statement personally signed by him on Monday, the pioneer National Secretary of the PDP faulted the media for concluding that he has defected to the APC merely because his wife was present at a meeting that he was not, stressing that his wife as an adult has her own political life.
  
He said, “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.” Nwodo said although a number of issues within PDP remain embarrassing to the founding fathers, the truth is that “I’m still a member of the PDP and has not joined the APC.”


The elder statesman ended the statement by urging his 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.
