The speaker of the Abia state House of Assembly, Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, has declared that he goes for plenary on a daily basis with resignation in his pocket.
Legit.ng reports that in an interview with Sun, Orji also denied the rumour that he was planning to impeach the governor of the state, Okezie Ipkeazu, adding that the propaganda was started by those that view him as their enemy.
He added that the rumour was started by those that feel that I am a stumbling block to their peace and happiness of becoming governor without actually working for it.
Orji noted that it is morally wrong for him to aspire to become governor of the state now, saying that hi father left office in 2015 as governor.
He said: "It was started by those that feel that I am a stumbling block to their peace and happiness of becoming governor without actually working for it. It is morally wrong for me to aspire to become governor of this state for now. Why do I say that? My dear father left office in 2015 as governor.
"To me, it can be summed up very simply that Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji whether the speaker or not, it is morally wrong for me to aspire to be governor of Abia in 2023 or even 2027 for the simple reason that my father, the immediate past governor just left office. We have not reached the level of the American mentality in politics. If I want to contest the election, the signs would be on the ground and not mere insinuations."
Orji also noted that he decided not to respond to every propaganda because he didn’t want the governor to be distracted from his enormous job.
He said: "I am only responding to it now because I don’t want the governor to be distracted from his job which is enormous. To calm their mind, let me tell you that at any time I wear my suit to go to work, I always have my resignation letter in my pocket; at any time the governor feels I am no longer protecting his interest or the interest of my colleagues, I will simply submit my resignation letter and go my way."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Governor Ikpeazu lambasted a former deputy national publicity secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, over his comment on him.
