Read the statement below:
“Our attention has been drawn to a press conference, addressed by some aggrieved members of APC who defected to the party from PDM last year, at which they endorsed the candidature of President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming presidential election. The press conference was held on Monday, March 16th, 2015 in Akure, capital of Ondo State. These APC members turned PDP agents are, reportedly, aggrieved that APC had not met their expectation during its last presidential primary and are unhappy with the position PDM has taken in support of the candidature of General Muhammadu Buhari. We wish to make it categorically clear that members of the group that addressed the press conference in question are not members of PDM. They defected from our Party in June last year to pursue their aspiration in APC and are no longer members of our Party,”
