Gov Emmanuel not defecting to APC, says Akwa Ibom PDP
THE State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has rubbished reports that Governor Udom Emmanuel plans to defect to the All Progressive Congress.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Ita Enang had claimed that the governor was making subtle moves to join the APC.
Enang, who cited the governor’s recent romance with APC stakeholders, including the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Senate President, Dr. Ahmed Lawan who were in the state for projects inauguration, concluded that ‘ Udom Emmanuel is now a member of the APC.’
But reacting to Enang’s claim in an interview yesterday, the Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Borono Bassey, said he was not surprised at the rumours, adding that APC is always struggling to have a performing governor like Udom Emmanuel in order to validate its failure in the state
He said ” the truth is that the governor has said it over and over again and as a party, we have made releases that the governor is not going anywhere.
“I like to think that people just want to draw attention to themselves because they know that people will be interested in hearing about this.”
