Earlier, Governor Dankwambo, while giving reasons for pursuing his presidential ambition under the PDP also said that although many people tried to discourage him against pursuing his ambition in the PDP, that he, however, has survived whatever were the reasons his dissuaders had given him, saying with the support of his people, he is victorious.
