PDP Official Speaks On Ikpeazu Working For Tinubu’s Presidency

The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu has been distanced from the presidential ambition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer, Bola Tinubu.

A member of the Abia State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council, John Okiyi Kalu stated this in a statement released on Saturday.

Kalu stated this while reacting to the grievances of Ikpeazu against the presidential candidate of PDP, Atiku Abubakar and the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu.

He further stated that Ikpeazu despite his grievances with the main opposition party will never work for Tinubu or APC.

According to Kalu, the speculation that Ikpeazu is among four governors that will work for Tinubu is fake.

He added that the Abia State Governor had clearly stated his intention to remain in PDP despite the crisis in the party.

Kalu in the statement wrote, “That HE Okezie Ikpeazu, PhD, wants his party leadership to dredge up the courage to accommodate all zones of our country pre and post-election periods does not in any way suggest an intention to leave PDP or back Tinubu in any form or manner.

“He used the analogy of raising alarm about the need to fix the faults in the vehicle, PDP, that is expected to convey us to political Canaan Land. However, he also stated that if his advice is ignored that he will board the faulty vehicle with the burden off his shoulder in case the inevitable happens.”

Kalu added that Governor Ikpeazu believes that restructuring PDP would give them in the South East the room to discuss with their people what is in it for them in a potential PDP federal government.

He noted, “As someone who has worked closely with Governor Ikpeazu, I can easily say that Tinubu and APC will not even be second or third choice for him if he actually feels greatly discontented with his party, the PDP. Leave Governor Ikpeazu out of your speculations and continue to vote for PDP.”
