This party PDP, belongs to all of us. They’re no godfathers, godmothers, no super digital something. Nothing of such in the PDP. You can be anything in this party provided you’re a loyal party man and that’s the beauty of the PDP.

“And the truth is that, we in the National Assembly have continued to speak truth to power, we don’t care who you are, we’ll tell you the truth and if, you do not like it, then, it’s too bad, because the truth is a constant.
