NIGERIAN NEWS: Orubebe denies defecting to APC, threatens legal action

A former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe, has denied media reports that he was leaving the Peoples Democratic Party to join “his folks” in the All Progressives Congress.

Orubebe said in a telephone conversation with our correspondent on Tuesday that he was “a proud and committed member” of the PDP, who is with the President in his bid to reorganise the party.

He said those behind the fictitious report hacked into his twitter account.
The former Minister also threatened to drag online media houses, who published the story of his alleged defection to the APC without contacting him, before the court.

He said, “It is not true that I am leaving the PDP for APC; it is not true and it cannot be true. I am taking online media, who have published the story to court.

“I am a core PDP member. I am with my oga(Goodluck Jonathan) and we are planning to reorganise the PDP to make it a party of unification.”
