Akpabio, who made this disclosure while speaking with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja also debunked reports of division among the party’s governors, saying that all the PDP governors are working for the progress of the party.
According to the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Nigeria will continue to enjoy good governance under the ruling party.
He said: “All of us are there because it’s a national party and it belongs to all Nigerians. I am happy with the progress being made to ensure total reconciliation and I am very hopeful that at the end of this exercise Nigeria will continue to enjoy good governance.
“I have just met with the President to report on the progress we are making towards the southwest congress that is coming up on August 24 and also the national convention that is coming up on the 31st and you know I am a member of the planning committee.
“I am the chairman of the finance committee and by 3pm this afternoon the entire finance committee will be meeting so that tomorrow we report to the entire body of the national planning committee towards hitch free congress in southwest and towards a hitch free national convention and you know even in the meeting what we are talking about are parts and parcel of the processes of rebuilding the party and ensuring total reconciliation.”
“All the steps being taken at the moment are steps in the right direction to ensure cohesion and bring back all the party faithful and particularly the body of governors will come together to work as one for the interest of Nigeria and the interest of the PDP.”
On the five aggrieved northern governors, he said: “I don’t know anything about any five aggrieved governors. I do know that all the governors of the PDP are working towards the success of the party.”
