Ojuogbo said further that the PDP would return to power in the next four years because the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is crisis-ridden and also lacks coordination and ideology.

He also spoke on the relocation of the Akwa Ibom and Rivers State election tribunals and the appointment of new Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Amina Zakari.

Ojuogbo said:

“Rivers and Akwa Ibom State tribunals are sitting in Abuja. No amount of intimidation will make the PDP lose the elections it won freely and fairly in these states. Any move to rig us out will be resisted.”

“We have said that the appointment of Amina is completely unacceptable to us. The example that ex-President (Goodluck) Jonathan gave should be followed. We know Amina is not apolitical.”
