PDP made mistake in presidential selection, we’ll beg Wike’s group – Udom

Five killed in renewed communal clash in Akwa Ibom

The Chairman of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council, Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will beg the G-5 governors and members of their integrity group.

Udom explained that party had made a mistake in its approach to the presidential elections and would beg Wike and his group.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Thisday, he said he and other members of the party are prepared to prostrate before the aggrieved “big men” in the party in order for the PDP to emerge victorious in the 2023 elections.

“We’ll resolve all issues. You can’t let anybody go in an election; every vote matters.

“Every single person is important in politics, not to talk of when you’re talking about very big men. Small men like us will go and prostrate ourselves before them: please oh, big men, don’t let us down.

“I’m into this game to win. I don’t think anybody will get to this point and be doing permutations. What kind of permutation?”

“But they are not unhappy with me as Udom Emmanuel. Did they tell you they were unhappy with the party? Four of them are candidates of the party. They hold tickets of the party. They’re members of the party; you are getting it wrong.

“So, certainly, we all make mistakes. I must also confess as a party, we’ve made mistakes, and as individuals, we’ve made mistakes. But these mistakes, I can assure you, will not break us”.
