UPDATED: Again, Wike's Camp Insists Ayu Must Go, Pulled Out From Atiku's Campaign


In less than a week to officially begin campaigns ahead of the 2023 general election, another wave of shock has again hit hard the main opposition party, the People's Democratic Party, which indeed might be a setback for the party.

This development is coming after the camp of Governor Nyesom Wike in the Peoples Democratic Party officially announced its withdrawal from participating in the presidential campaign of the party for the 2023 elections.

The group made its position known after a long meeting which started at about 7 pm last night and ended by past 2 am this morning at the private residence of Wike in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Members of the group said none of them will participate in whatever capacity in the campaign council unless the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, resigns for a southern candidate.

Some members of the group were recently appointed as leaders and members of the campaign council for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Present at this defining gathering at Wike’s residence in Port Harcourt includes Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State; former Governors Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti, Donald Duke of Cross River, Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe, and Jonah Jang of Plateau, former Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke.

Others at the meeting are elder statesmen, Olabode George, and Jerry Gana; South-South Chairman of the PDP, Dan Orbih; former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chibudom Nwuche; Senator Suleiman Nazif, Nnenna Ukeje, among several others.

After over seven hours of private meetings from 7 pm on Tuesday, September 20 to past 2 am on Wednesday, September 21, they gather to brief journalists on the outcome, with Chief Olabode George stating the shocker.
