“I supported, voted for you because I have the belief you can turn this PDP to success in 2023. But if you are not doing well, Mr Chairman I will shout and say ‘this is not what we expected from you.
“Do not be distracted about who will be the presidential aspirant. Let them not disturb you, go and focus and rebuild the party. Once the party is rebuilt, I can assure that you will have somebody that will stand in this party and Nigerians will vote for that person.”
