The immediate past Governor of Abia State and Senator representing Abia Central, Senator Theodore Orji, has revealed that he would soon make a statement on Abia politics.
The former governor, who disclosed this in a press statement made available to The Eastern Updates in Umuahia, said ‘in the days ahead, Abians would hear from me.’
It is expected that the senator would bare his mind on issues that may include power rotation, the recent party primaries in the state that have sent many faithful away from the PDP in the state and others aggrieved, as well as the issue of imposition of candidates by the party in the state, among others.
The statement, personally signed by the former governor and made available to newsmen by his Liaison Officer, Ifeanyi Umere, will be a breaking of silence by the senator since the PDP in the state has been involved in a manner that have created aggressive mass deflection by party faithful in political positions in the state.
Senator Theodore Orji representing Abia Central Senatorial district and a former Governor of Abia State, had last year insisted on his avowed commitment to quit politics in 2023 for younger ones to take over.
The Senator said this, weekend, at a function held at Umuajatta Olokoro in Umuahia South Local Government Area, LGA, of the State.
According to Orji, ‘it is the same for every young person here. Your future as Abians is bright. I have since decided to quit politics in 2023 so as to give way for all of you.’
‘If I don’t quit, there won’t be space for you. But I have to quit so that you can take over. I’ll support you in every way possible.’
‘You have all been supporting me since the inception of my political career, thank you so much for that; it’s the for me to support you in your own careers, too”, he concluded.
