Former Governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji, has vowed never to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Orji insists he would rather quit politics than decamp to the party.
He stated this during a town hall meeting held at Umuahia North Local Government headquarters.
“At no time did I discuss or mention such move to any individual or group because it is not in the pipeline and will never be there.
“Why would I leave my party, the PDP?” he asked. Whatever that is happening in my party is part of the development process of our great country; we should not all be in one political party; That is not how to develop democracy,” Orji said.
Orji, who is representing Abia Central Senatorial District in the Senate, also claimed that prominent personalities left PDP for APC out of selfishness.
“Abandoning the PDP or any other political party because of alleged crisis is most uncharitable, especially when majority of them have benefitted hugely from it,” he said.
