6 Governor’s of the PDP are believed to have resolved to work against the 2023 Presidential campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

6 Governor’s of the PDP are believed to have resolved to work against the 2023 Presidential campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

According to a report by Daily Sun, the PDP governors, predominantly from the South are now openly against Atiku’s presidential bid.

The source listed some of the governors as Nyesom Wike of Rivers State; Samuel Ortom of Benue State; Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State; Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Ishaku Darius of Taraba and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, as governors unwilling to support Atiku’s bid.

The source said when Wike lost the primary election to Atiku, party leaders agreed that it would be best to pick him as the running mate to Atiku.

He revealed the aforementioned governors met with Atiku and other leaders to pick Wike as a popular choice, but were ignored by Ayu and Atiku, who are believed to be micro-managed by some powerful Northern leaders.

He said though they may not defect to the APC, they’re likely to sabotage the chances of the PDP from within

“The governors can’t and won’t defect. They understand that clearly. If they defect now, their candidates can’t win elections. Some of them are gunning for a second term. But they’ll sabotage Atiku the same way PDP governors sabotaged President Goodluck Johnathan in 2015.

“If you recall, many governors of the PDP, especially from the North, worked for the emergence of Buhari. They didn’t leave the PDP, but they sabotaged it from within. That’s what may play out in the case of Atiku.

“There is a general consensus from Southern leaders that power should return to the region. And many PDP governors are close friends of the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. They will work for him. If that happens, hold Atiku and Ayu responsible,” the angry source further revealed.

Currently, Wike and Ikpeazu are in Turkey on their annual vacation
