Ekweremadu, who made this known while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Thursday, said the PDP leadership and its members were unperturbed over the new party, the fanfare that greeted its registration notwithstanding.
While calling the APC a ‘gang-up’, Ekweremadu, however, said the ruling PDP was happy with the emergence of the party as the task of contending with several opposition parties during elections had been reduced.
“We are not worried about the APC. For us, that makes the game more interesting. We usually used to contend with several parties and now we just only have one party to contend with and it makes the matter much easier for us.
“You know in Nigerian politics, gang-up never works. You are the ones calling it a coalition but I will call it a gang-up. So, they will split and they will still come back to us in PDP and we will welcome them,” he said.
