2015: Gang up against Jonathan, PDP will fail – Governor Orji

Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji

Orji says PDP remains strong

The governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji, said the current political gang up against Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and President Goodluck Jonathan, ahead of the 2015 general elections would not succeed.

Mr. Orji said this to journalists in Umuahia on Friday.

“There will be gang up but they will never succeed. The president remains focused,” he said.

He said the PDP was getting stronger and there was a lot of re-engineering presently going on in the party.

Mr. Orji expressed the hope that defectors from the party would soon return, adding that new members would also join the party.

The governor commended the resignation of the former National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur, and described it as patriotic and a sacrifice to move the party forward. He also commended the immediate past Chief of Army staff, Azubuike Ihejirika, for serving the nation meritoriously.

Mr. Orji said that the president had the prerogative to re-engineer his service chiefs ahead of 2015.

“President Jonathan has done the right thing, we are nearing election and he has to put his house in order. The president has the prerogative to appoint whoever he likes,” he said.
