Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe, has denied reports that he was dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Orubebe said reports attributed to him on a Twitter account, @ElderGOrubebe, was completely false, noting that, he is committed to the PDP and its cause.
Rubbishing the report, he said: “The reports are absolute nonsense. I am a believer of the PDP and I am with my Oga (boss) President Goodluck Jonathan. The reports online and on social media media are totally false,” he told our correspondent via text message.
Earlier today, a tweet attributed to him read: “I have concluded plans to join my folks in the APC to champion and sustain the movement for a better Niger Delta in the new administration.”
It will be recalled that Orubebe became an item during the last election when he tried to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega from proceeding with results from states across the country.
