Senate deputy minority whip, Senator Philip Aduda, has faulted reports circulating in the social media that he has left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“The social media was awash yesterday (Wednesday) that I have defected from the PDP to the APC. I want to tell Nigerians that it is fake news. I am in PDP and I remain in PDP. I am not cut out for politics of jumping from one party to another. I will continue to be in PDP. There should be ideology in politics," Senator Aduda stated.
“I promised FCT people to champion those things that promote peace and unity in the FCT and the country in general. That is what I have been doing and will continue to do.
“The people of FCT and my supporters should not bother. The news is totally unfounded and fake news. I have no plan whatsoever to defect and I will not defect. I will not leave the PDP for any other party.”
The lawmaker urged those behind the rumours about his defection to desist from deceiving people.
