Senate Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Philip Aduda, on Thursday denied that he has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Aduda, who represents the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, said that Nigerians should disregard the rumours making the rounds.
The lawmaker, in a statement, also said that he was also not planning to leave the PDP.
“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 said.
Aduda also urged those behind “this false information to desist from deceiving the people.”
