Ahead of 2023 and amidst their refusal to openly declare support for Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of their party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), one of the aggrieved five governors of the main opposition party who have described themselves as the G5, has reportedly met privately with the party’s presidential flag-bearer in Abuja.
POLITICS NIGERIA learned that one of the G5 governors, from the South-East region (name withheld), visited Atiku a few days ago and assured him of his loyalty.
The governor reportedly said he was only fraternising with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, who is the face of the G5, ‘because of their friendship and what he had benefited from him’.
The G5 consists of PDP governors – Wike; Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde; Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu; Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom; and Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi – who said they are unhappy with the same-region domiciliation of the presidential candidacy and National Chairman position.
Punch quotes a source privy to the visit as saying, “The governor went to Abuja. He told the former VP that he would work for him and the PDP, saying he was following Wike because of their friendship and what he had benefited from him.
“He also said he would never work for any other candidate or political party apart from the PDP and Atiku.”
Join Atiku train is the best option to survive the country in ✋ of corrupted people.
Can southern Nigeria produce President after a southern President has ruled. Who is that right thinking northerner that will ever accept that scenario. Let’s be fair and just.
On Atiku mandate we stand, by God’s grace Atiku will win.
I want to thank God and thank this Governor for his wise decision. May God bless him with more wisdom and grant him all his heart desire, Amen. Remain Blessed Mr Governor.
Weldone mr governor taken wise decision
Can any of the G5 go to Atiku even in midnight that journalist will not know and post his picture?, and why not mention his name or state so the press men can interview him. This type of stories should come with proof.
That is how he wants. Vote Atiku/Okowa come 2023 General Elections in Nigeria.
Supporting Atiku is a day dream by G5 Governors the news is original fake
Vote Atiku/Okowa come 2023 General Elections.
Anyway anything can happen in Nigerian politics,our politicians are capricious and unpredictable.,without any sound ideology.They are fully self orientated and have nothing in stock for the masses of this country
This is politics we are talking about, take a critical look at these so call G5 governors they all have political aspiration in their various states except Wike and they wouldn’t want to loose so they have no choice other than to come back home
We are no longer following Northern policy of government let’s change prevails in Southern government we stand
Can southern Nigeria produce President after a southern President has ruled for eight years? Who is that right thinking northerner that will ever accept that scenario. Let’s be fair and just please.
