APC reject former Abia State Governor,Theodore Orj

Former Abia State House of Assembly Speaker and
chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Stanley
Ohajiriuka, has warned former governor, Chief Theodore
Amaefula Orji against joining the ruling party.
He called on the former governor, who is the senator
representing Abia North Central District, against defecting
to the APC.
Speaking with newsmen after Abia State APC caucus
meeting in Umuahia, Ohajiriuka stated that Senator Orji’s
governance style while serving as Abia State governor
was largely due to his leverage on the former president,
Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience and any that
attempt to join the ruling party would amount to betrayal.
According to him, “It will be heartbreaking to the former
President and his wife to see Orji abandon a party that
stood in for him when he was unleashing terror on Abians
and owing salaries of civil servants.
“While more politicians from this state are expected in no
distant time to formally join the APC, we are against
people like Senator T. A Orji abandoning his party to also
join the moving train.
“We are not ignorant of the role former president
Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Mrs Patience Jonathan
played in his governance. It will therefore, be costly and
demeaning of him to even nurse such intention.
“If he still has conscience, he should remain in the
People’s Democratic Party, PDP. A party that his likes
used to show Abia an example of what a leader should
not be.”
Speaking on the plans of Abia APC in the next general
election, he said, “Abia State has suffered so much in the
hands of those who can’t get a handful of votes without
manipulating the results.
“This time around, such things will no longer be seen nor
heard among us. We are reinforcing and if you look at the
calibre of people that attended today’s caucus meeting.
You will agree with me that the PDP will soon be sent
packing .”
