The PDP gubernatorial primaries have come and gone. The winners have been declared. I congratulate my colleague Sen. Sandy Onor on his victory at the polls and wish him well in the forthcoming general elections. I also congratulate the back to south movement that recieved over 322 votes out of 601. Well done. The PDP in CROSS RIVER STATE heard us loud and clear.
I thank the PDP at the National and State levels for running a fair and transparent process throughout the primaries. Well done PDP.
Congratulations to my team and my advisers for a job well done. Our democracy is stronger and more robust because of your efforts.
Finally, a big thank you to the members of our great party. PDP remains the only solution to the problems we face as a country and my prayer is that our National Convention will produce a candidate that can win the general elections next year. Thank you.
Long live PDP
Long live the Federal Republic of NIGERIA
