Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has reacted to speculations that he is set to defect to the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Ikpeazu won the Abia State gubernatorial election as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Reacting to the rumour, Ikpeazu, described the rumour as untrue.

The governor on Friday, December 25, reaffirmed his loyalty to the PDP in a statement made on a radio show.

Ikpeazu who said he has no reason to leave his party argued that the PDP remains the best party for the people of Abia state.

He said: “I do not see any reason why I should leave the PDP for any other political party. The music of politics as it plays differs from one State to another.

“Here in Abia, the people are comfortable with the PDP and I think the aspirations of Ndi Abia will be met and achieved under the platform of the PDP.”

The governor said that he remains a strong member and a leader in the party. Ikpeazu insisted that the PDP is a flourishing political movement when compared to other political parties.

His words: “I will rather be a conductor in a moving vehicle than be the driver of a stationary vehicle.”
