I have no plans to return to PDP – Former Education Minister, Jerry Agada

Written By Idoma Television on Friday, March 4, 2016 | 10:58:00 PM

A former Minister of Education (State) Professor Jerry Agada has downplayed his possibility of returning to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Agada, who served under the late President Umar Musa Yar’Adua, said he is not planning to return to his estranged party despite its victory at the just-conducted Benue South election rerun.

The former National Association of Nigerian Authors, NANA, who was reacting to inquiry by DAILY POST of his alleged plan to join the PDP, said some persons were only out to rubbish his image.

Speaking with our correspondent on phone from his Abuja base, Agada, a native of Orokam denied ever discussing with anyone that he was returning to the former ruling party.
His words, “Do you think at my age I don’t know what I want? My brother, I am not planning to return to PDP. My decision to join the APC was not because of the Benue South rerun. I had made up my mind before the election and I am not planning to change my mind because of the outcome of the election.

“I really don’t know what some people intend to gain by peddling false rumours about me. The last time, I was accused of using thugs to terrorize voters during the last election. There’s not iota of truth in all these hearsays.”

Asked why he decided to join the APC despite his closeness with some topshots of the PDP, the Magic Year author said, “I have said this before. Former Senate President, Chief David Mark is a member of the PDP, in fact, my very good friend and I am still loyal to him. I joined APC on personal reason and I wouldn’t want to start explaining why I left my former party,” he added.
