Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state has dismissed reports of his imminent exit from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, following the defection of his Cross River counterpart, Professor Ben Ayade, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The governor was quoted as saying on Tuesday, “Do you know why they are writing that I will join them? They are looking for good people to repair their party.
“They want someone with projects as they don’t have any. They want someone that commissions projects. They have never commissioned any because they don’t have any. Tell them I am not coming.
