He denied allegations that he is a card carrying member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) or any other political party and challenged those peddling the allegation to come forward with evidence of his being a registered member of any party.

According to him, “I am not a card carrying member of any political party even though I’ve served in various positions in the state. Let me also use this opportunity to assure all Abians that under my watch we will conduct free and fair elections with utmost transparency but will not tolerate anyone with fake or forged certificate. I want to encourage such people to disqualify themselves now.”
