The chairman of the PDP Governors' Forum, Governor Godswill Akpabio said that his mission is to cleanse the many Judases within the party.
He also took a swipe at the opposition parties' formation of the All Progressive Congress (APC), stating there is no headache with the PDP and therefore, "Nigerians will not take any APC as APC is an outdated drug. What Nigerians want at this moment is panadol and PDP is panadol. The PDP is not in a hurry to leave the control of the federal government".
According to Akpabio: "In the past there was no global warming and HIV Aids. There was no need for PDP Governors Forum because were totally in charge, but today PDP is facing challenges. PDP is fighting itself. There was a time PDP was having 27 governors."
