‘Tomorrow (today), our presidential candidate and the campaign council will be in Uyo. We need to understand that crises are normal but what is more important is that those crises must be resolved in the interest of all parties. If you listen to the PCC chairman who is the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel in his comments recently, you will understand what I am saying.
‘Governor Udom has said that the PDP had in the past, come out of many crises stronger than before. Regardless of what people are saying today, the party is ready and on a steady march to the presidential villa come 2023,’ he said.
It was gathered that the PCC chairman, though supportive of the party’s peace moves, is of the position that programmes and activities must be pursued to keep the momentum.
