2023: PDP’s G-5 Governors Reach Truce With Party Elders, Make New Demands

The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) appears to be over after the leadership of the party reached a truce with the PDP G-5 governors.

Members of the PDP G-5 Governors, led by the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, have been at loggerheads with the party’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, after Wike failed to win the party’s presidential ticket.

Other members of the G-5 are: Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.

The G5 were also unhappy that Atiku rejected Wike as running mate and are demanding the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as party Chairman, allegedly to reduce dominance of the PDP by the North.

However, indications have emerged that former military head of state, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd) appears to have brought the crisis rocking the main opposition party to an end.

The parley which appeared to be fruitful saw the G-5 making fresh demands.

A party chieftain, who preferred anonymity, said the G-5 have agreed to work for the Presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, if their fresh demands would be acceded to.

Their demands, according to to the reliable source, are: “That the top government offices should be shared among the six geo-political zones;

“That the security chiefs should be shared among all the geo-political zones and that all the party’s offices in the South should move to the North and vice versa if Atiku wins.”
