The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State has berated Senator Obinna Ogba, who represented Ebonyi Central Senatorial Zone, over his alleged plans to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party claimed that the Senator was leaving the party because he failed to clinch the gubernatorial ticket in 2022.
Naija News recalls that Ogba recently dumped the PDP and declared interest in joining the APC in the state.
Reacting to the development via a statement made in Abakaliki on Sunday, the state chairman of the PDP, Augustine Nwazunku, said that Ogba lacks moral consideration.
They insisted that Ogba has become a tool of destruction for politics in Nigeria.
The statement said, “Senator Obinna Ogba is indulging in politics of wilful cynicism devoid of moral considerations. To him, honesty of purpose is old fashioned. He is committed to a hedonistic political behaviour based on Pharonic self-love.
“His decision to leave PDP for APC is because of his failure to win the PDP GUBER primaries in 2022. This is a concrete manifestation of wilful political anarchism, syndicalism, individualism and personality cultism.
“We in the PDP had decided to forge ahead without the distractions of these planted fifth-columnists but they are making the process of leaving PDP for the APC become an endless programme of stage-managed noise-making.
“It is unfortunate that people like Sen. Ogba have allowed themselves to be used as willing tools for the destruction of politics in Nigeria.

“After all, Ogba was an unknown political quantity before the PDP catapulted him to various eminent positions in the state and at the national level, which culminated in his going to the Senate for two terms from 2015 to 2023.”
