The Chairman of the Presidential campaign council of the People's Democracy Party (PDP), Udom Emmanuel has emphasised the need for people to keep to their words.
The Akwa Ibom State Governor, said this while reacting to the withdrawal of Governor Nyesom Wike’s camp from the Presidential Campaign Council of the PDP.
CEOAFRICA had reported that the Wike’s camp is demanding for the resignation of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu and the Zoning of the position to the South.
Ayu had been quoted to have promised to resign from his position if a Northerner emerges as the Presidential candidate of the party.
However he has failed to fulfil the promise insisting that he had a four year mandate.
Udom during an interview on Thursday stressed that Nigerians must learn to fulfil the promises they make.
He said, “One thing I discovered about politics and life is that people should try to do what they said they would do. That’s the crux of some of the problems.’’
“If I say I would do this when A happens, let me keep to that. If I say I will do B when C happens, let me also keep to that.’’
“Everybody has the right to express himself however he wants.’’
“The earlier as a Country we keep to our words and promises, the better for everybody.’’
The Governor, while reacting to claims that the removal of Ayu, must follow the constitution of the party said; 
“Some things are lawful but not all things are expedient. I’m coding my expression here. So let's look at those things that are expedient for peace sake.’’
“I believe somebody like me if I know, even as lawful as that thing may be, if it is expedient for the sake of peace and for us to move, I think I can take certain actions”.
Udom also said he believes that the issues within the party will be resolved soon.
