However, Alaibe has expressed optimism that he would win the party ticket in September and vowed not to dump PDP even if he doesn't.
Ndutimi Alaibe, a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has allayed fears that he would decamp from the party, if he fails to clinch the governorship ticket.
There have been insinuations that the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) cannot be trusted, as he is not a loyal PDP member and he is already planning to defect to another party if he fails at the primaries.
However, Alaibe has expressed optimism that he would win the party ticket in September and vowed not to dump PDP even if he doesn’t.
Alaibe, who was fielding questions in Yenagoa, during a visit to the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), said: “I have spoken severally on it (defection) and I hope you read it up. There is not going to be any crisscrossing again; it was the exigencies caused that at that time. You can look for the grammar to support that.”
“You saw me take the forms, you will soon see me submit them and we are running on PDP ticket. We will unveil very shortly our programmes and the details of our strategic plan for Bayelsa State,” he said.
