Another popular politician dumped PDP.
Oriaku in a letter he personally signed and submitted to the PDP chairman, Mbutu Ukwu Ward 3, Isiala Ngwa South, Owerrinta, said that he is consulting widely on his next political moves.
The immediate past commissioner in the letter titled: Resignation of My membership of the PDP, said that he decided to resign his membership from PDP because PDP in Abia State, as presently constituted, covertly and overtly, lacks the basic structural integrity to deliver the much talked about good governance as dividends of democracy to people of the state.
Oriaku said “My political odyssey in recent times has been enriched by the most historic events as well as challenging experiences.
“I must give credit to my boss, Dr. Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, who found me worthy to serve in his administration, first as his Economic Adviser in the Transitional Government of 2015, then as substantive Commissioner Of Finance for the entire first tenure of his administration.
“Recall that when his cabinet was dissolved, I was one of the very few he allowed to hold sway in the Executive Council prior to his inauguration for a second term in office.
“In my four years stint as the Honorable Commissioner of Finance, I learned, “I taught” and I unlearned.
“I was both a beneficiary of Ikpeazu’s school of political sagacity and his humaneness. Of course, I also had my challenges in the hands of a few, whose agenda differ remarkably from the noble agenda of the administration from inception.”
Oriaku was the former Finance Commissioner of Abia State between 2015–2019.
