Former Abia State Governor, Senator Theodore Orji has promised that he would be quitting politics for the youths to take over in 2023.
Orji, who is the current Senator representing Abia Central, stated this weekend during a wedding in Umuajatta Olokoro, Umuahia South Local Government Area of the state.
According to him, he would quit politics in order to pave way for Nigerian youths to take over after completing his eight years in the Senate at the dissolution of the ninth National Assembly in 2023.
“Your future as Abians is bright. I have since decided to quit politics in 2023 to give way for you all,” he said.
“If I don’t quit, there won’t be space for you. But I have to quit so that you can take over. I’ll support you in every way possible.
“You have all been supporting me since the inception of my political career, thank you so much for that; it’s time for me to support you in your own careers too.”
KanyiDaily recalls that a lawmaker, Dr David Sankok, had vowed to quit politics, saying that the fastest way to become poor is to become a Politician.
