PDP Crisis: ‘Wike Is Alone, Other G5 Governors Will Dump Him’


A former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Capt Tunji Shelle has submitted that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is alone in the fight against the PDP’s presidential ambition.

According to Shelle, the other four members of the aggrieved Governors of the party popularly called G5 Governors are not totally with Wike but will work for the PDP presidency in 2023.

News360 info recalls the G5 Governors; Nyesom Wike (Rivers State), Seyi Makinde (Oyo State), Samuel Ortom (Benue State), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia State), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State) took a stand against supporting the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

They 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.

With a few days to the 2023 presidential election, there are fears the G5 Governors may endorse another party’s presidential candidate.


Speaking on the development during an interview with Arise TV on Monday, Shelle said Wike is alone and the other G5 Governors are just playing along.

He said only Wike is not contesting any elective position in 2023 and the others fully understand what is at stake and how it may affect their own ambitions if they don’t work for the PDP and its presidential candidate.

According to him, Wike’s stand is becoming a personal vendetta and a drama with others who were initially on the same page with him now losing interest.
