Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, CON, has denied reports that he has dumped the PDP and joined the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, stressing that though developments in PDP are embarrassing and unexciting, he is yet to dump the party.
In a statement that he personally signed, Dr. Nwodo, a pioneer National Secretary of the PDP and a former Governor of the old Enugu state said that it is improper for the media to stand merely on his wife being present at a meeting where he was not present “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,” he said..
Dr Nwodo noted that although a number of issues within PDP remain embarrassing to the founding fathers, like himself,, 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.
