Udom Emmanuel says Akwa Ibom will remain with the PDP and wouldn’t follow APC on whose platform he has won two terms as governor.
Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State says he will not be following the footsteps of his fellow south governor, Cross River’s Governor Ben Ayade, to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ayade Defected to the APC:
Ayade defected to the APC last week, citing his desire to help actualise the vision of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration for Nigeria.
His defection has fueled rumours that other PDP governors are gearing up for the same move, but Emmanuel has shut down the fingers pointing at him.
The governor said in a statement on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, that Akwa Ibom will remain with the PDP on whose platform he has won two terms as governor.
The Governor Udom Emmanuel Sayings:
He said, “Do you know why they are writing that I will join them? They are looking for good people to repair their party.
“They want someone with projects as they don’t have any. They want someone that commissions projects.
“They have never commissioned any because they don’t have any.
“Tell them I am not coming.”
Ayade’s defection is the most high profile between the two major parties since Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi, similarly dumped the PDP for APC last November.
Both parties have boasted in the media that governors and high ranking public officials on the other side are eager to switch allegiances, a common trend that reaches a fever pitch ahead of general elections.
