By; PATRICK TITUS, Uyo

The Chairman, Atiku/Okowa 2023 Presidential Campaign Council of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Udom Emmanuel has dispelled the rumours of his planned resignation as false that emanated from the camp of the opposition parties.

Emmanuel, who is also the Governor of Akwa Ibom State,  described his chairmanship position in the  council as a patriotic duty he owes to Nigerians who want Atiku to become the next President.

A statement issued on Wednesday by Borono Bassey,  State Publicity Secretary of PDP Akwa Ibom State, described the rumours as a product of speculative efforts of the opposition.

The release read, “On Tuesday, November 8, 2022, a wild retrogressive rumour to the effect that Governor Udom Emmanuel was considering to resign as Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, made the rounds.

“The rumour, which is purely a product of speculative efforts of those who are averse to the enticing idea and beautiful prospects that Nigerians will enjoy under the Atiku/Okowa Presidency from 2023, is coming at a time when millions of Nigerians have admitted to seeing the higher chances of the PDP taking over the reins of power at the Center with His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar as President in 2023.

“In a swift reaction to that rumour, Governor Udom Emmanuel has said that at no time has he ever contemplated resigning his position as Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, stressing that this is a Patriotic duty, he owes to Nigerians who are anxiously waiting for the incoming PDP administration to repair the all-round ruins left by the current administration.

“As a firm believer in the capacity and aptitude of Atiku Abubakar to tackle and address the myriads of challenges bedeviling our nation at this time, Governor Udom Emmanuel says he remains a frontline dogged, undeterred, focused and optimistic Compatriot in the collective match by Nigerians to rescue Nigeria and redirect her on a path of accelerated and collective progress and development.” It stated.
