We understand that one of our leaders, who we have an opportunity to be a minister of the federal republic of Nigeria, we have the opportunity to be the governor of this state and made him chairman of PDP governor’s forum, today out of threat he left us.

“Those who are unfaithful will never last long I want to assure you that. Like a smoke, he has left us and now we can see clearly. We can see those who are gentlemen and those we can depend on to salvage our country.

“I want to assure those of you that are still with us that you will never regret your staying back in the party.” (Tribune)
