The Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, said on Friday the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not split due to the decision of the party to throw its 2023 presidential ticket to all geopolitical zones in the country.
The party had on Wednesday ditched the zoning principle and opted to throw the presidential race open to all aspirants from different geopolitical zones in Nigeria.
Emmanuel, who is one of the aspirants vying for the PDP presidential ticket in this month’s primary, stated this when he featured in a Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today.
He noted that the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) took the decision towards the restoration of the party’s glory.
The governor stressed that the party was determined to win the presidency in 2023 in order to tackle the challenges dragging the country backwards.
Emmanuel vowed that he would not abandon the party no matter the outcome of the presidential primary.
