An All Progressives Congress chieftain, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu, has carpeted fifth columnists over the reports of her purported resignation as a member of the APC in Abia State.
The ex-federal lawmaker maintained she has not left APC for another political party as wrongly reported by a local online news medium, and reiterated that she remained a bonafide member of the governing party in the country.
Senator Nwaogu who was also the immediate past Pro-chancellor and Chairman of the Board Council of the Federal University of Calabar, Cross-River State, refuted this in a statement by her Media aide, Kelechi Onyendi, issued to newsmen in Umuahia, the Abia capital on Thursday.
She clarified that she has no intention under whatever guise to dump the All Progressives Congress for another party, as those nursing such a mirage is suffering from dementia and schizophrenia.
Nwaogu who further boasted that nobody can push her out from the APC, described the news of her purported resignation as a member of the party as figment of the imagination of the writer.
Words: “we have received a misleading headline purportedly from an unknown and unfamiliar junk media platform named Abia City blog, who can be bent on publishing a misleading news headline without proper investigation and research.
“While we do not want to dignify the backyard media man we need to clarify the issues on ground and set the records straight for the avoidance of doubt.
“The factional Abia APC under Ikechi Emenike has decided to sideline Umunneator Ngwa extraction by giving both the senatorial and gubernatorial ticket to Umuahia, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu has not thought about defecting to any party but had condemned in totality the marginalization of Umunneator Ngwa under factional gubernatorial candidate, Ikechi Emenike.
“Nobody can push Senator Nkechi Nwaogu out of APC. Anyone thinking that she can quit our party is hallucinating. She will be the one to chase them out of APC because they have nothing to offer. We shall see who will laugh last”.
On the issue of 2023 Governorship election, Senator Nwaogu admonished the electorates in Abia state to vote for credible and transparent candidates who will position the state to become the state of our desire.
