Mr Kayode, according to The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said this in Abuja on Thursday, April 30, while dismissing insinuations that he was about seeking political asylum abroad, following the failure of the PDP to win the 2015 presidential election.
He said: “We are not going anywhere, I can speak for myself and I can speak for many others. We are here to stay. We will provide a virile opposition to the APC.
“We will do all that needs to be done to ensure that the incoming government remains on its toes and we will all do this in a very peaceful and a very honourable way.
“But, nobody is going anywhere as far as I’m concerned, we are here to stay, neither are we running away, there is nothing to be scared of, we fought hard, we did well.
”I’m very proud of my team, I am proud of my campaign organisation and we will continue in the trenches until this country is on the road to success and we will continue to do that.’’
He assured that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would join hands with other political parties, including the All Progressives Congress (APC), to move the nation forward.
He denied speculations in some quarters that the party was divided, saying the party will remain stronger and united for the general progress of the country.
In the same vein, President Goodluck Jonathan has also predicted that those decamping from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to other parties will return with empty stomach in the near future.
He made this prediction while receiving the PDP campaign report from its Director General, Ahmadu Ali at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday, April 30.
