Acting state Chairman of PDP, Isaac Mffo, who presented party flags to National Assembly candidates from Zone C maintained that the party was one large family. “We don’t segregate. I urge you to work hard for the victory of the party. If it is not your turn today, tomorrow maybe yours,” he maintained.
