Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has discredited speculations linking him with plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He disclosed this during a state radio programme, ‘The Platform’, in Umuahia, noting that he has not seen a better party for the State than the PDP.

There were speculations in Abia State the Governor Ikpeazu was set to defect to the All Progressive Congress (APC) before the end of the year.

However, Ikpeazu in his reaction 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 in a veiled reference to the APC, said “I will rather be a conductor in a moving vehicle than be the driver of a stationary vehicle”.

He added “Nobody has been able to convince me that there is a better party for us here in Abia than the PDP. I am a strong member of the PDP and a leader in the party. In fact, I am the Deputy Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum”.
