Abia State governor, Chief Theodore Orji, declared yesterday, that ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had no internal problem.
He also denied that PDP governors boycotted the one year anniversary celebration organised by the Bamanga Tukur led executive of the party.
Orji, who spoke to reporters in Umuahia shortly after he returned from his trip to the United States of America, explained that PDP governors did not boycott the anniversary of the party’s leadership but blamed the poor attendance by PDP governors on inadequate notice.
“It is not correct to say that PDP governors boycotted the ceremony. The notice did not go round. It is also not correct to say that the governors are running away from PDP.
“The governors are still strong members of PDP and PDP is still very strong. PDP has no problem within its house,” Orji explained.
He said what was happening currently in the party was what usually happened in a big family that would make it stronger at last.
The governor also disclosed that he used his trip to the USA to discuss with potential investors in different sectors of the state and expressed the hope that some of them would soon be visiting the state for feasibility studies.
On local government elections, Governor Orji assured that the state would conduct one but did not say when.
The governor spoke on the unraveling of the celebrated gang-rape incident wrongly linked to the state university, ABSU, saying the shame now was on those who maligned the state without proper investigation of the incident.
He commended the police for doing a good job in unraveling the ugly incident.
