Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, says he goes to work every day with his resignation letter in his pocket.
The speaker, who is the son of the former governor of the state, Theodore Orji said this during a recent interview with Vanguard.
The speaker said he contested election in 2015 just to be a member of the assembly and only wanted people to know him for who he is as people thought he couldn’t “even speak proper English, talk less of expressing myself. The impression of me out there was that of an illiterate. ”
To those pushing propaganda against hi., be says he “cannot respond to every propaganda. I am only responding to it now because I don’t want the governor to be distracted from his job which is enormous.”
“To calm their mind, let me tell you that at any time I wear my suit to go to work, I always have my resignation letter in my pocket; at any time the Governor feels I am no longer protecting his interest or the interest of my colleagues, I will simply submit my resignation letter and go my way.”
