Tinubu Strikes Deal with Aggrieved PDP Governors in London

Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) presidential candidate, apparently reached an agreement with the five PDP-affiliated governors who were upset (PDP).

APC candidate Tinubu appealed for their support earlier in the week during a lengthy meeting with the governors, sometimes known as the G5 governors, in the United Kingdom.

All five G-5 governors—Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi—were present at the meeting (Enugu).

Badaru Abubakar, the governor of Jigawa State, and Kayode Fayemi, the former governor of Ekiti State, were on Tinubu’s side.

On Thursday, December 29, 2022, however, there were signs that Tinubu had succeeded in persuading the governors to support him.

The governors decided to collaborate with Tinubu, according to a source who talked with Daily Trust. According to the source:

“We have agreed to work together with the G5. The agreement rhythm with our desire to forge together a government of national unity.”

“When the history of this political epoch is written, the names of Wike, Ortom, Makinde, Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu will be written in gold for the courageous decision to place national interest above all other considerations.”

The source added that the governors would stick with the PDP and work to make Tinubu’s presidency a reality.

Another source told the publication that the dissatisfied governors and Tinubu’s camp are still adjusting the alliance’s parameters for everyone’s benefit.

In the meantime, the PDP had threatened to apply the requisite fines on the offended governors in the event that they abandoned their party’s presidential candidate in favor of a rival.

When the necessity occurred, the PDP would implement the pertinent articles of its constitution, according to the party’s spokesman, Debo Ologunagba.
