But for now, he said they were still members of the party and would be ready to work for the success of PDP in future elections.
â€œWe are PDP members and faithful ones. We are awaiting the written judgment as well as the advice of our lawyers. For now, we are still PDP members,â€ he said.
Ojouigbo charged members in the state to return to their local government areas and wards and strengthen the party more while awaiting directive from the former executive of the party.
The the state factional Chairman of PDP, Hon. Austin Ogbabunor, urged the former leadership of the party to note the peculiar situation of the party in the state and how to integrate them into the party.
He warned that if the party in the state, led by the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa failed to absorb them, then they would think of another option.
â€œIf the state PDP wants to work alone, then we will let them be and think of another option,â€ he said.
