Former Abia State Governor and Senator representing Abia Central, Theodore Orji has promised to quit politics in 2023 to make way for the youth.
Orji said that he will retire from politics after he completes his eight years in the senate in 2023.
The senator said this at a traditional wedding in Umuajatta Olokoro, Umuahia South Local Government Area.
According to him, if he doesn’t quit there wouldn’t be space for the youths. He also thanked the youths for supporting him since his political career.
“Your future as Abians is bright. I have since decided to quit politics in 2023 to give way for you all.
“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.”
