Former Delta state governor, Emmanuel Uduagahan has debunked reports that he has left the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
In a statement released by his media aide, Sunny Areh on Monday, Uduaghan said those circulating the report aim at creating disaffection between him and the state governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa.
One Tony Oritseje who claimed to be Uduaghan’s Press Secretary in a statement said the former Governor had dumped PDP and joined the ruling APC ahead of the 2019 General elections.
Uduaghan stated, “This is obviously the work of mischief makers and those seeking cheap publicity. It is a joke taken too far. None of my aides is named Tony Oritseje. It was obviously meant to create disaffection for me and my successor, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the PDP and the Federal Government.
“People close to me know this is not my style. I have deliberately maintained a low profile to allow those in power today to have enough space to fulfil electoral promises to the people. It is not my style to seek cheap publicity or disrupt a peaceful process that is delivering democracy dividends to the people.”
The statement maintained that the former governor had chosen to maintain a very low profile since leaving office.
