“PDP is striving towards a transparent, rancour-free, and fair primary election,” Ikem stated in an interview with DAILY POST.
“We shall praise God if a consensus arrangement emerges along the road.”
Ikem also spoke about Senator Sandy Onor, who represents Cross River Central, and whose emergence apparently enraged stakeholders in the Southern District, who believe it is their turn to produce the next governor.
“It’s not possible for anyone’s ambition to please everyone even in his family.”
The chairman went on to say that all of the other candidates were qualified and marketable.
“All PDP candidates are doing well in the field, and I can promise you that they have widespread support across the state.”
“That is what running for office can accomplish for a political party.” It also brings people together across racial and geographical borders.”
Nonetheless, Ikem stated that the ward congresses held a few days ago had practically all aspirants declaring victory.
He expressed his joy by saying that the ward congresses were fair enough for practically all parties to accept the decision.
