The G5 Saga

Naija News reports the governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike is amongst the aggrieved Governors within the People Democratic Party (PDP) now popularly referred to as the G5 who took a stand against supporting the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The G5 had insisted on the resignation of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu from office and his replacement with a southerner as the only condition to support Atiku’s 2023 bid.

However, despite several meetings and entreaties on how to resolve the disagreement, Ayu has refused to step down and the Governors have also not changed their position.

The G5 Governors are Nyesom Wike (Rivers State), Seyi Makinde (Oyo State), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia State), Samuel Ortom (Benue State), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State).
