Okwesilieze Nwodo

A former National Chairman of Nigeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Okwesilieze Nwodo, has reacted to media claims that he had decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Chief Nwodo told journalists in Abuja on Monday, that his wife had defected to the ruling party and “it is improper for the media to stand merely on my wife being present at a meeting that I was not, to conclude that I have joined the APC disregarding the fact that my wife as an adult has her own political life.”

The chieftain of the PDP further said “although a number of issues within the PDP remain embarrassing to the founding fathers, the truth is that I’m still a member of the PDP and have not joined the APC,” he said.

He urged his supporters across the country particularly in Enugu state, to disregard the purported story as his political direction would not be hidden if the need arose.
