A former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Victor Ochei, has reacted to rumours that he has dumped the party.
The former Speaker dispelled the rumours at his Onicha-Olona country home during an interactive session with the APC faithful in Ward 4, Onicha-Olona, in Aniocha North Local Government Area of the state.
The politician reassured party faithful in the state that his membership of the party is not negotiable.
He said, “I have been inundated with phone calls requesting clarification on my purported defection to another political party.
“I want to use this opportunity to reassure all our party members that there is no iota of truth in that speculation. I won’t quit APC.”
Ochei said he would remain a devoted and faithful member of the APC.
“Having tendencies in a political party doesn’t mean the party is in disarray. Rather it is natural because even within nuclear families, tendencies exist.
“But eventually, the family will overcome such developments and remain in existence,” he added.
