The politician, who is the proprietor of Baze University, Abuja, however, noted that he would respect the beliefs of any individual or political party on zoning during the forthcoming elections.
He explained that he had always been a leading opposition figure since he joined politics, adding that he would remain in PDP this time around if it becomes the ruling party.
“You will find me to be one of the most consistent Nigerian politicians. I’m playing a role to bring the PDP to a ruling party in the country. If by God’s grace that happens, I will stay in PDP and ensure that we deliver on our promises,” he said.
