“I have not retired from politics. I know that since I left office I have not been at meetings of the party but I am still a committed PDP member,” he declared.
He praised Anenih for his role in the nation’s political history describing him as a patriotic Nigerian who was always interested in the unity of Nigeria.
“Anenih works hard to ensure that what he believes in succeeds. He does not emphasize North, South divide,” the former president said.
