Speaking at an interactive session with journalist in Lagos, Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State said that whatever the outcome at the Supreme Court regarding who should lead the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) between Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi, he would not leave the PDP and no genuine PDP member would leave too.
According to him, the issue lingering around the PDP is just leadership matter which is internal and cannot make the part go on extinction.
“Regardless of who wins, we will stay to build the PDP. The name PDP remains. I’m PDP; PDP is in my blood. Anyhow the judgment goes, I remain in PDP. Nobody is going anywhere. All those going are looking for negotiation and we will negotiate with anyone.
“I want people to see my children tomorrow and say, you are family of PDP. Only greedy people are jumping ship. The Supreme Court judgment won’t change the name of our party. The party will stand on the mission and vision it was founded. We will build the PDP,” he said.
