The PDP chairman, Ezekwesilieze Nwodo, was last week in Umuahia to woo Orji into the PDP. But the governor who left the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) recently for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) said for him to oblige, all officers of the PDP in Abia state must resign and all structures dissolved from ward to the state level.

He said he must be the only contender for the governorship seat under the party’s platform.

Reacting to this, Umeham said, “he has just wriggled out of the mouth of a lion [PPA]. In fact, coming out of that bondage is a miracle to people like us who are his well-wishers. We congratulate him for that. And for him to come into the PDP, he should not rush it. He should wait for all the conditions that he gave to be met.

“Of course, I want him to come into the PDP. Ezekwesilieze Nwodo wants him to come into the PDP because we know he is a grassroots man. We know he has the overwhelming grassroots support and would not want him to come into PDP to be messed up again. Therefore, he should take his time.

“Let there be a level ground for him before he will come into the PDP. He got into APGA only weeks ago. Now to get into the PDP, for us to believe that he is a serious man—I agree with the conditions he has given the PDP.

“He should listen to wise counsel from founding fathers and mothers of the PDP and not from those who decamped from other parties.”

Orji started in the PDP before moving to the PPA when former Governor Orji Uzor Kalu founded the PPA in pursuit of his (Kalu’s) presidential ambition. He was Chief of Staff in Kalu’s eight-year administration.
