Reactions As PDP Crisis Deepens As Wike Refuses To See Atiku

 

 

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is apparently unwilling to engage with the committee formed to address the conflict, which is causing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) situation to worsen.

The PDP has been a divided house ever since Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, selected Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State, as his running mate last month.

Despite Wike being recommended by a 17-person party committee, Atiku was rumored to have rejected him as his running mate.

Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia State, Seyi Makinde, the Oyo and Benue state governors, and Ayodele Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti State, are thought to be Wike’s loyalists.

Some party officials, including Fayose and Ortom, recently voiced their discontent over Atiku and Okowa’s selection as the party’s standard bearers for the 2023 presidential elections.

Fayose recently criticized the PDP, criticizing the party on Twitter, and insisted that power must return to the South in 2023.

Additionally, Governor Ortom stated during his Arise TV interview that he had not yet decided whether or not to support Atiku. In addition, he accused the PDP of betraying Wike.

Recall that in 2021, the Southern Governors agreed that in 2023, power will simply transfer to their region.

The governors committed to oppose any political party that nominates a person from the north for president.

The PDP chose to open up its presidential ticket to contenders from all regions in spite of calls for power to return to the south. Atiku, a northerner, ultimately won the party’s nomination for president.
