He said, "all the real and perceived problems within PDP in the state are not beyond amicable resolution and I commend our elders and leaders for their meaningful mediation which is already  yielding fruitful results

" I consider our problem or do I say matter as local and domestic which can and will be resolved domestically, therefore, let us be civil, couth and display maturity in the use of words

"Beyond politics, let us see and embrace ourselves as brothers and sisters in dealing with one another in order to collectively build a virile PDP, capable of winning all the elections resoundingly.

"We need to be diplomatic, strategic, calm, calculative, methodical and decent in our approach to the conduct of free and fair primaries"
