Wike’s camp gives PDP condition to join Atiku’s campaign team

Gov. Wike and his camp are insisting that the office of the Party’s National Chairman moves to the South following the emergence of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar as the its presidential candidate.
Wike, who is from the South-south region of the country, vied for the presidential ticket of the Party and came second.
The resolution of the Wike camp followed a meeting that was held in the early hours of Wednesday, September 21, 2022, in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Reading out the communique after the meeting in Port Harcourt, capital city of Rivers, Bode George, a PDP chieftain, flayed the PDP for “putting the cart before the horse” by releasing the presidential campaign council list which has the name of Wike and his allies in it.

He said: “The published presidential campaign council list translates to putting the cart before horse, the pertinent issue remains the Ayu leadership.

“We therefore resolve that Senator Iyorchia Ayu resigns as the National Chairman for an acting chairman of southern Nigeria extraction.

“We resolved not to participate in the campaign council in whatever capacity until the resignation of Dr Iyorchia Ayu.”

The Rivers governor’s allies include Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde; Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom; Bode George, Jerry Gana and former Cross River State Governor, Donald Duke.
