Speaking on the internal crisis rocking the opposition party, the former Anambra governor said, “The leadership crisis in the LP presently is not an abnormal thing, it is an in-house problem and it will be solved amicably as a family.

“I have never thought of leaving the LP, I only advocated for peace because I am a man who believes in peace, I am a man who believes in unity, I am a man who believes that we are the same.

“I don’t see any difference between you and me; by the grace of God I always want to do the right thing.

“That is the reason I came here personally, I would have asked someone to represent me, no, I didn’t.”
