The PDP leader stated that the immediate challenge before the PDP was to ensure that Southern Kaduna remained very united and support the nomination of Dr. John Ayuba.
“John Ayuba is first of all from Southern Kaduna and therefore going to the press to agitate against him is not the right thing to do without asking the PDP gubernatorial candidate the level of consultation he made before arriving at Dr John Ayuba."
