ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Senator Nkechi Nwaogu, a strong member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has refuted the reports of her purported resignation as member of the party in Abia State.
Nwaogu, a former federal lawmaker maintained that she has not left the APC for another political party.
The Senator 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, on Thursday.
She noted that she had no intention under whatever guise to dump the APC for another party and that those nursing such a mirage were suffering from dementia and schizophrenia.
She further boasted that nobody can push her out from the APC, describing the news of her purported resignation as a member of the party as a figment of the imagination of the writer.
She said, “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 from our party is hallucinating. She will be the one to chase them out from APC, because they have nothing to offer. We shall see who will laugh last”.
Speaking on the issue of the 2023 governorship election, Senator Nwaogu urged the electorates in Abia State to vote for a credible and transparent candidate who will position Abia “to become a State of our desire.”
