The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi State has berated Senator Obinna Ogba, who represented Ebonyi Central Senatorial Zone for eight years in the National Assembly, over his alleged plans to defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The PDP said Ogba decided to leave the party because he failed to win the gubernatorial primaries in 2022.
Recall that Ogba recently resigned his membership of the PDP and declared interest to move to the APC in the state.
The state chairman of the PDP, Mr. Augustine Nwazunku, berated Ogba in a statement made available to journalists in Abakaliki on Sunday.
The statement said, “Senator Obinna Ogba is indulging in politics of wilful cynicism devoid of moral considerations. To him, honesty of purpose is old fashioned. He is committed to a hedonistic political behaviour based on Pharonic self-love.
“His decision to leave PDP for APC is because of his failure to win the PDP GUBER primaries in 2022. This is a concrete manifestation of wilful political anarchism, syndicalism, individualism and personality cultism.
“We in the PDP had decided to forge ahead without the distractions of these planted fifth-columnists but they are making the process of leaving PDP for the APC become an endless programme of stage-managed noise-making.
“It is unfortunate that people like Sen. Ogba have allowed themselves to be used as willing tools for the destruction of politics in Nigeria.
“After all, Ogba was an unknown political quantity before the PDP catapulted him to various eminent positions in the state and at the national level, which culminated in his going to the Senate for two terms from 2015 to 2023.”
