Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has pledged not to abandon the Peoples Democratic Party in spite of the crisis currently rocking the party at the national level.
Umahi made the pledge on Sunday during a Christmas ‘Get-Together’ he organised for the State Working Committee of the PDP including its local and zonal committee members.
The governor spoke against the backdrop of fears in the state that he would soon dump the party due to the crisis and to secure his second-term bid.
According to him, the current challenges confronting the party will not lead to its demise as it will soon fizzle out with the commitment of its dedicated members.
“Anybody who believes that I would leave PDP for the All Progressives Congress or any other party is sleeping and should be woken from sleep.
“APC and other parties cannot win election in this state because PDP has performed marvelously and cannot be arm-twisted,’’ he said.
