The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu has denied nursing plans of dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for another party.
The Governor in an interview on Friday amidst rumours that he is planning to dump the PDP for another party submitted that he is very comfortable with PDP.
He added that while every politician is at liberty to choose political affiliations, he belives the PDP is the best option not only for him, but also for Abia State.
He said: “I don’t begrudge those who jump political platforms but for me, I have not seen any reason why I should leave PDP.
“The music of politics as it plays differs from one day to another. Here in Abia, I think that ndi Abia are comfortable with PDP.
“I think the aspirations of ndi Abia will be met under the platform of the PDP. 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 PDP, I am a leader in PDP and in fact, I am the deputy chairman of the PDP Governors Forum. I will rather be a conductor in a moving vehicle than a driver of the stationary vehicle.”
Meanwhile, Jigawa State Governor, Muhammad Badaru, on Friday, claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress may lose the forthcoming elections in the state if the crisis in the party persists.
Badaru while speaking at the inauguration of the APC caretaker committee in Duste, state’s capital, said he would no longer tolerate any party member associating with factions in the state.
This is coming after the former APC Chairman in the state, Habibu Sara, was removed from office after a caucus meeting.
Sara was accused of being loyal to Sabo Nakudu, senator representing Jigawa central.
The governor asked the committee to be committed to the development of the party in the state.
