By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has reaffirmed his commitment to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, regardless of the spate of defections to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) by some of his colleagues.
The governor made this assertion during an interview on Friday, where he emphasized that Abia people were comfortable with PDP, which is working to meet their aspirations.
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.”
