The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom State, on Thursday, said it has not endorsed any aspirant in the build up to the 2023 Governorship elections.

At a Press Conference in Uyo, the umbrella party insisted that the discussion of 2023 gubernatorial election was still very unripe and immature, especially, as the second term of Governor Udom Emmanuel was yet to reach even a year.

Spokesperson of the Party in the state, Comrade Ini Ememobong who addressed newsmen, said rather than heat up the polity, party faithfuls should collaborate with Governor Emmanuel, for the attainment of his completion agenda.

”Our attention has also been attracted by various articles, online and in the the traditional media suggesting that the Governor and the party have adopted, endorsed, encouraged or prefer an aspirant in the build up of the 2023 Governorship elections. “We wish to state for the records that as a party, the discussion of 2023 is still very unripe and immature at this moment, as the second term of Governor Udom Emmanuel is yet to reach even a year”.

“We urge those trying to stimulate the commencement of the 2023 cycle to instead collaborate with the current administration in the attainment of it’s completion agenda, which holds life touching and land-defining interventions for us as a state”, he said.

The party further urged its members and supporters to ignore those peddling what it described as “devious rumours of endorsements and strategic support for any alleged aspirant to any office”, and continue steadfastly in their support for the current administration in the state.
