When Nwauju visited the State Executives of the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Port Harcourt, he also spoke as the state’s interim APC publicity secretary.

Contrary to popular assumption, he asserted, the party had strong ties to the state.

“We believe that with our leader, we will be able to form the next government in the state, because we have a world class candidate as our flag bearer in party in the state.

“Many people in the party have retained their membership because of the amiable leadership of Chief Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.

“APC is firmly rooted across the 319 wards of our state, ofcourse there are rumours of people defecting, but if you investigate deeply you will find out that majority of those who left, did not leave with our members, rather they left alone.

“We think it is necessary for the media to report our party appropriately by investigating and going beyond what politicians say,” Nwauju said.

He added: “We have those who want to see to the betterment of the society and they are interested in the common humanity, they are interested that Nigeria should move forward,

“Politics should also not be for those who are serving their personal purse,Our leader believes in common humanity and that’s why he has raised men in the state and beyond.

“We cannot tell our own story by ourselves, that’s why we are seeking this support of the media to investigate and understand the motive of those defectors.”

Mr Amaechi Okonkwo, Chairman of the NUJ Correspondents’ Chapel, advised politicians to play politics by the rules in his answer.

According to Okonkwo, the visit to the chapel was important since it would provide media the chance to learn the real details of the party.
