Udom Emmanuel, the PDP’s chairman of the presidential campaign council, has emphasized the importance of people keeping their promises.
In response to Governor Nyesom Wike’s camp leaving the PDP presidential campaign council, the governor of Akwa Ibom State made the call.
Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP National Chairman, must quit, and the office must be zoned to the south, according to Wike’s camp.
If a northerner wins the PDP presidential nomination, Ayu was reported to have pledged to resign from his position.
He looked to have broken his “promise” nevertheless, adamant that he only had a four-year mandate.
Speaking on Channels TV Sunrise Daily on Thursday, the Governor said Nigerians must learn to fulfill the promises they make.
He said, “one thing I discovered about politics and life is that people should try to do what they said they would do. That’s the crux of some of the problems.
“If I say I would do this when A happens, let me keep to that. If I say I will do B when C happens, let me also keep to that.
“Everybody has the right to express himself how ever he wants.
“The earlier as a country we keep to our words and promises, the better for every body.
Reacting to claims that the removal of Ayu must follow the constitution of the party, the governor said, “some things are lawful but not all things are expedient. I’m coding my expression here. So let look at those things that are expedient for peace sake.
“I believe somebody like me if I know, even as lawful as that thing may be, if it is expedient for the sake of peace and for us to move, I think I can take certain actions”.
He, however, expressed hope that the issues within the party would be resolved soon.
