Two of our members are abroad and could not join us today.
“They are Solomon Lar and Alex Ekwueme and we are carrying them along.
“Regardless of the reports your are hearing, it is suffice to say that family dispute within the PDP, which we want to stem the tide of going to the brink. And I want to say that we have met with the two side of the family and we have listened to them”
