"We read reports in the media last week that Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM, will not participate in the governorship elections coming up in Ekiti and Osun States. The report was totally false. It was a misrepresentation of the position of the Party. The official responsible for this misrepresentation has since been relieved of his position.
For the avoidance of doubt, PDM is fully committed to the people of Ekiti and Osun States and will never abandon them in their time of need. We appreciate the hard work our members in those states are engaged in, in order to take over the mantle of leadership in those states and we shall remain faithful to their struggle until they succeed. We can see that success coming in 2014.
Although PDM does not discuss its election strategies in the media, last week's misrepresentation has made it necessary for us to make this clarification
