PDP Crisis: People Should Stick To What They Say — Udom Emmanuel

Akwa Ibom State Governor, South South Nigeria, Udom Emmanuel said people should keep to what they say noting that the crisis in the Peoples party will be resolved.  

Gatekeepers News reports that Emmanuel said this on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.

He added that the Governor of Rivers State, South-South Nigeria, Nyesom Wike and other “dissenting voices” within the party have the right to express their views, noting that they won’t be ignored.

According to the Akwa Ibom governor, the disagreement within the party is “not high mountains that are so difficult to climb”.

“This is a family business. Nyesom Wike is my brother, you all know that.

“One thing I discovered about politics and life: people should try to do what they say they will do; that is the cause of some of the problems. If I say I will do B if A happens, let me keep to that. If I say I will do B if C happens, let me also keep to that.”

Wike’s group within the PDP early Wednesday announced its withdrawal from the campaign council, insisting that Ayu must step down for a southerner.

The group made up of serving and former governors, as well as ex-ministers, met insisted that both the presidential candidate of the party (Atiku) and the party’s national chairman (Ayu) cannot come from the north.
