Theodore Orji insists on quitting politics in 2023

Former Abia governor Theodore Orji

Senator Theodore Orji has denied nursing a presidential ambition, insisting that he intends to quit politics in 2023.

The former Abia State governor said this in a statement signed by his chief liaison officer, Ifeanyi Umere, on Monday.

Orji restated his earlier stance that he has no political ambition after his current tenure as senator expires in 2023, describing those behind the posters as people “who are not happy with his towering status in national politics.”

The statement read: “This is to let the public know that Senator T.A. Orji is not running for any political position in 2023 as he has last year declared that he is quitting politics in 2023.

“Those behind this act are those who are not happy with the towering status of the former Abia State governor in national politics.

“Senator TA Orji is using this opportunity to assure his constituents that he will not be distracted by this latest antics of these political merchants of falsehood, as he will remain focused in delivering the dividends of democracy to the people.”
