Atiku runs a campaign in Kaduna, as Wike meets in the UK.


Atiku runs a campaign in Kaduna, as Wike meets in the UK.
Today (Thursday), the five disgruntled governors of the People's Democratic Party will gather in London, United Kingdom, under the leadership of Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State.

Remember that Wike, Governors Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, and Governors Samuel Ortom of Benue recently resigned from the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, requesting that Iyorchia Ayu, the party's national chairman, be ousted.

In spite of having purportedly agreed to run with the governor of Rivers State on a combined ticket after losing to him in the primary election, Atiku Abubakar chose the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate, which has angered Wike.

In order to make decisions in advance of the 2023 election, Wike, Makinde, and Ortom met in London in September.

It was discovered that the most recent meeting may have been influenced by the party and Atiku's decision on Monday to launch the campaign without Wike and his friends.

There has been little progress in bringing Atiku and Wike's allies together thus far. Adolphus Wabara, the acting chairman of the party's board of trustees, formed a reconciliation committee to address the ongoing problem, but it hasn't been successful in mediating a resolution as planned.

Wike has promised to stay in the party, but has also said that unless Ayu departs, he won't be involved in the presidential campaigns.

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, was reportedly described by the PDP as being "dazed" by Atiku's thunderous introduction at the wildly successful flag-off of the presidential campaign in Uyo.

The party insisted that Tinubu has lost his sense of direction to the point where he is unable to speak or participate in any coherent political conversation.

By way of a statement released on Wednesday by Debo Ologunagba, the PDP's spokesperson, insisted that the APC's presidential nominee lacks substance as evidenced by his recent comments disparaging other political parties.

The spokesperson for the Atiku/Okowa presidential campaign, Kola Ologbondiyan, has reassured Nigerians that when Atiku wins the 2023 election, the suffering and sorrow they are now going through under the All Progressives Congress government will end.

Ologbondiyan mentioned a Wednesday encounter with some PDP youths in Abuja.

He emphasized that the PDP and its presidential candidate were concerned about the sorrows and pains that the APC had caused citizens during the previous seven years.

According to him, only Atiku Abubakar has a workable plan for eradicating the suffering, hunger, starvation, economic troubles, diminished purchasing power, and sense of helplessness that the APC administration has inflicted upon Nigerians.

"It is nevertheless disgraceful that the APC front man, Tinubu, who is facing multiple legitimacy and disqualification issues, is exhibiting such vacuity in the public domain," said PDP spokesman Ologunagba, who emphasized that the APC's presidential candidate has demonstrated to Nigerians that he is incapable of serious presidential discourse.

"Asiwaju Tinubu has become so disoriented that he can no longer articulate or participate in any constructive and focused political discourse," he claimed, "dazed by the resounding presentation of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar at the enormously successful flag-off of our presidential campaign in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, on Monday, October 10, 2022.

The PDP, which is fully "articulated" and soaring with its campaign, will not be the party that can be characterized as a "termite party," of course; instead, it will be the doomed APC, which is crawling after becoming legally crippled and no longer being a legitimate and valid vehicle to field candidates in the 2023 general elections.

The APC candidate "has not made any substantial comment or contribution to major national concerns since he secured the APC ticket, instead he has been engaging in illogical, incoherent, and fatuous comments," according to the statement.

In a related event, the PDP chapter in Kaduna State established a presidential campaign council on Wednesday with 60 members and Alhaji Mukhtar Yero as chairman in advance of Atiku's anticipated visit to the state.

Yero was installed as the committee's deputy chairman alongside Mohammed Sani Sidi, a former director-general of the National Emergency Management Agency and candidate for governor in the PDP.

Haruna Sa'eed, Mohammed Abbas, the National Youth Leader, Muhammad Kadade, Shehu Sani, and 54 other people are also on the committee.

The state PDP chairman, Hassan Hyat, inaugurated the council members at the party secretariat and stated that it was anticipated that the committee members would work arduously for the victory of the party's presidential candidate.

He claimed that with the presidential campaign already underway in Uyo State, the party in Kaduna State was growing stronger.

Hyat added that the presidential candidate would be in the state for three working days on a special assignment where he would interact with important party stakeholders throughout the three senatorial zones because of the distinctive nature of Kaduna.

We already had meetings with all the gubernatorial aspirants including the gubernatorial candidate in the state on their roles ahead of the presidential candidate’s visit, He stated
