Senate Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Philip Aduda, Thursday denied dumping the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Aduda who represents the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja said that Nigerians should disregard the news making the round that he has defected to the APC.
The FCT senator also said that he is also not planning to leave the PDP.
The lawmaker said that he is not only a PDP leader in his ward; he is also a leader of the party at the national level.
He described the news in the social media on Wednesday that he has ditched the PDP for the APC as fake news that should be disregarded in its entirety.
He said, “The social media was awash yesterday (Wednesday) that I have defected from the PDP to the APC. I want to tell Nigerians that it is fake news. I am in PDP and I remain in PDP. I am not cut out for politics of jumping from one party to another. I will continue to be in PDP. There should be ideology in politics.
“I promised FCT people to champion those things that promote peace and unity in the FCT and the country in general. That is what I have been doing and will continue to do.
“The people of FCT and my supporters should not bother. The news is totally unfounded and fake news. I have no plan whatsoever to defect and I will not defect. I will not leave the PDP for any other party.”
Aduda urged those behind “this false information to desist from deceiving the people.”
