PDP considering expelling G-5 Governors

G-5 Governors

Published on: December 29, 2022

PDP is considering the expulsion of the G-5 Governors, and the dissolution of the Party's structures within their respective states. The 5 Governors, Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Nyesom Wike(Rivers) and Ifeanyi Ugwanyi (Enugu) are said to have met with APC flag bearer and Presidential candidate; Bola Ahmed Tinubu during a marathon meeting which was held on Tuesday in the United Kingdom.


The APC flag bearer has reportedly sought the endorsement of the 5 Governors in the upcoming general elections of 2023, in Nigeria. But hours after the governors meeting with Tinubu, the PDP said it was not aware of their parley with the ruling party’s presidential candidate, noting that as far it was concerned, the governors were in the UK on vacation. The main opposition party, however, threatened to punish the governors for any anti-party activities, stressing that it had the capacity to discipline the recalcitrant governors.


It is unclear what the demand of the governors were in the meeting with Tinubu, with a source from PDP refusing to comment, saying he would not want to 'speculate', but what is obvious, is that both parties seek to mutually benefit from the parlay.
