APC Not A Threat To PDP Dominance – Uduaghan

Emmanuel-UduaghanDelta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan yesterday said that all grey areas within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), especially, as it concerns the Governors, would soon be straightened out.

Uduaghan, who welcomed the formation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) however dismissed the alliance as a threat to the ruling party.

At an interactive session with newsmen in Abuja yesterday shortly after the end of a meeting of the PDP Special National Convention, Governor Uduaghan said, “We had our emergency NEC meeting yesterday which was very successful and we have a national convention which is coming up on the 20th of July to regularize elections that INEC has issue with at the party level. The party is still very much intact and very very strong for that matter.”

On the grievances by some Governors, Uduaghan noted, “Some of these governors that people are saying are not pleased with the party, virtually all the governors were there yesterday. May be one or two were not there because they traveled.

“As a PDP Governors’ Forum, within ourselves, we are doing a lot of reconciliation. You would have noticed that even the coming back of Wammako had a lot of input from us. We had to appeal to the leadership of the party that the suspension should be reversed and the party graciously agreed to reverse it. So, whatever is left, we are handling it at that level.”

On APC, he simply said, “I don’t think the party has ever been threatened. Like the President said, it is good that we have a stronger opposition but it is not that there is any threat.”
