PDP in Akwa Ibom is intact, says Udom


Governor Emmanuel Udom

Due to assumed depletion of members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) family in Akwa Ibom State, when the former governor, Senator Godswill Akpabio left the party, Governor Udom Emmanuel has debunked such assertion, saying the party was intact in the state.

He said this, while receiving the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who was on a solidarity visit to him, assuring his visitors that the party was still regarded as a religion in the state and that there was no cause for alarm.


He said: “I want to assure you that we still have the party 98 per cent intact: The state Assembly 24 over 26, the state executive council 100 per cent, 31 local government council chairmen and councilors 100 percent, among others.

With all these, we can only say that these men are leaving something behind for coming Akwa Ibom children to learn from.”

Udom, who described Saraki’s visit as unprecedented, urged him not to be cowed by challenges facing him.

The governor thanked his visitor and the National Assembly for their resilience, noting that their stance on some national issues was a clear sign of mentorship for younger Nigerians.
