He maintained that he has paid his dues even as he noted that his loyalty all these years in the party has paid of and which made it possible for him to get appointments into several positions before now.

Chinedum Orji in 2023 general election, saying that, ” persons who will represent us at all levels must be well known to us. I have served up to 25 years in PDP without disappointing them. I have served diligently”, he said.
Responding, the PDP Secretary for Urban Ward 1, Victor Nwankwo promised of their overwhelming support to his aspiration even as he educated members on the importance of going to obtain their voters cards as it will remain only flying an ordinary pitch, if all they do is just talking without the cards.
