Why G5 cannot be accused of betraying PDP – Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said the G-5 governor and members of the Integrity Group cannot be accused of betraying their party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that speaking during a media chat on Wednesday, Wike stressed that those who blatantly refused to implement the provisions of the party’s constitution on rotation of elective and appointive offices are to blame the party’s electoral ‘misfortune’ in the 2023 election.

According to him, all the G-5 governors consisting of Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State; Samuel Ortom of Benue and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia made “great” sacrifice to ensure the emergence of a southern president (Bola Tinubu).

The governor particularly, expressed delight that Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, who had earlier said he would not mind sacrificing his second term on the altar of equity, justice, and fairness was re-elected.

“Ortom said even if he loses his senatorial election, let equity, justice, and fairness prevail. He may not gain it now. But history will be kind to him. The same applies to Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu. Even Makinde said even if he lost his governorship ambition, he was interested in the unity of Nigeria,” Wike said.
