Four G-5 govs do not want to support Obi because if he wins, he will not enjoy Nat. Assembly

According to a news that was published by the Vanguard Newspaper online this morning, it was reported that feelers from the G-5 camp in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have said that the governors in the camp are torn between declaring support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and that of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.



It was reported that a reliable source within the G-5 governors camp, who confided in Vanguard, said that the governors were considering giving their support to either of the two but, they are divided.

He said, “Four of the G-5 governors do not want to support Obi because if he wins, he will not enjoy National Assembly.”

Further talking, he said one of the Governors was making a case for Obi but others argue that, he lacks the support base to cover the 36 states and Abuja.

He said, “Those in this camp argue that should he emerge victorious we will be returning to square one because he will not enjoy the majority in the National Assembly and thus will find it difficult to pass legislation required for him to make the reforms he has been conversing. On the other hand, those among them making a case for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are of the view that, the party being the ruling party has the requisite spread.”

The source also claimed that they alluded to the fact that, Tinubu so far appears to recognize the disaster the APC represents at the Centre and had concentrated on using successes recorded in Lagos State as example of what he intends to do when he gets into office.
