The main purpose of our meeting was for us to resolve to work together to promote understanding, unity and collaboration among the four of us and any other person from the South-East zone who may later join in the race. We had a very fruitful meeting in an atmosphere of friendliness and respect for one another.

We have agreed to work together as a team. We will work together to ensure that a South Easterner emerges the PDP flag bearer; we intend to consult with other zones on this issue and it is based on fairness and equity;

In doing so, it is important to note that we have always supported other zones and we now expect them to reciprocate.

We are committed to working with our party leadership and party members from across the country to ensure that the founding principles and ideals of our great party are upheld.

This is to reassure Nigerians that PDP is ready to rebuild and reunite our dear country. We ask Nigerians to give us the chance to fix this country. Together we will get Nigeria to work again” he stated.
