Ikpeazu said:

“We must all take individual responsibility for our performance in the 2023 elections even as our party is going through self-cleansing at the moment.

“I will remain in PDP and will never be found wanting in my responsibilities to our party and its rebuilding process.

“Those who want to leave will leave no matter what you do but loyalty is also about the realization that at some point this party has been good to you.

“It is now time for sacrifice, especially from those who previously benefitted from our party in one way or another as we must all join hands to reposition it.”
