70-year-old former Governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji, who is a serving senator, has promised to quit politics in 2023 in order to give way for the youths to take over.

At a wedding over the weekend, Orji, who will be 73 year old in 2023, said he will resist pressures to seek positions that will keep him in active politics beyond 2023, when he completes his eight years in the senate.

According to him: “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.”
