“It is undesirably embarrassing what is happening in the state chapter of the party but as a leader, Dr. www is disinterested in joining issues with anyone based on hearsay especially as Prophet Jones has already disowned the said statement.

“Dr. Uduaghan and other leaders of the party are doing everything within their might to restore calm in the Chapter. He advises every member of the party to refrain from making unguarded comments that could further aggravate the simmering squabbles in Delta APC”.
