Aduda denies plan to dump PDP



Senate minority whip, Senator Philip Aduda (PDP-FCT) has debunked media reports on his alleged planned defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, describing it as false and unfounded.
Aduda, while fielding questions from Senate correspondents on the report, said it was nothing but figment of imagination of those behind it, as he had no such plan, more so since he had been in PDP since 1998.
“No, I have not defected; I am in Peoples Democratic Party. I am not planning to defect; body and soul, I am in PDP. I am a bona fide PDP member and I am a leader in the PDP and not only being a leader in PDP, but a loyal member of the party from my ward to national level.
“I have heard the trend on the social media and also all sorts of stories on the alleged defection but it is false. People have called me from all over the world and even my constituents. I want to thank those who expressed concern about my political career and future.
“We must continue to build not only institutions but parties. And as such my ideology is with the PDP and I am still a member of the PDP,” he said.
On the sudden defection of Senator Godswill Akpabio to the APC, he said though Akpabio is his friend, his defection to the ruling party could not influence his decision to remain with the PDP.
“You should know that politics has nothing to do with friendship and as such, we have our political differences.
“For me I want to re-iterate that I worked very hard for the people of FCT and nothing will hamper me from working for the people of FCT. So, Akpabio has his reasons for leaving PDP but for me, I will continue to serve the PDP and I am loyal to my party,” he stressed.
