Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo has denied reports that he has left the party for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

Nwodo made the denial via a statement released on Monday, April 11, 2016.

“It is improper for the media to stand merely on my wife being present at a meeting that I was not, to conclude that I have joined the APC, disregarding the fact that my wife as an adult has her own political life," he said.

“As one of the founding fathers of PDP who has held the highest office in the party, I know the statutory procedure of resigning and would willingly do that if necessary,” he added.

Nwodo also urged his supporters to ignore the rumours of his supposed defection.
