PDP crisis: Five neutral governors is plus for APC, says Oshiomhole


Adams Oshiomhole, former governor of Edo, says the five governors at the centre of the crisis in the people democratic party(PDP) will be an advantage for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 elections.

Dubbed as G5, the five governors — Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu — are among the stakeholders calling for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the party’s chairman.

The call is said to be on the grounds that the party’s presidential candidate and national chairman cannot be from the same region.

Speaking on Friday after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, Oshiomhole, former APC national chairman, said his party is on course to win in the forthcoming elections.
