Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has dismissed reports that he is plotting to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor described the report as a vile and evil propaganda. Udom said he has no plan to leave the PDP now or in the nearest future.

The governor in a statement issued by his media aide, Ekerete Udoh, stated that he will never join the APC.

"We wish to state categorically Governor Udom Emmanuel has never entertained for a nanosecond the thoughts of joining the APC.

"He will never join the APC. He is a committed, nationally celebrated and recognized member of the PDP. He has contributed in no small measures to the resurgence of the PDP, which has seen the party record a gale of defections across the country to the eternal grief of the APC.

“Governor Udom Emmanuel has stated at different platforms that he is, body, spirit and soul PDP and that passion and commitment has translated into the overwhelming support the political establishment and the good people of this this State have shown him, since certain individuals decided to pursue their political interest elsewhere. 

“We call on the good people of Akwa Ibom State and Nigerians in general to dismiss the story for what it is: an evil and vile propaganda.

“Governor Udom Emmanuel will win convincingly at next year’s gubernatorial election to continue his superlative performance and the party that will guarantee him the victory, as it was in 2015, shall remain the PDP. Akwa Ibom State is PDP and Governor Udom Emmanuel remains PDP for life.”
