Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has asserted that he is not the PDP’s G5 group’s leader among the party’s disgruntled governors.
In a recent interview, Wike identified Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, as the G5’s leader.
“We must not hand over our home to armed robbers. No way. And we’re not leaving this party, he added.
“The governor of Benue State is the G5’s leader, not me.
We don’t resemble them. We would continue to argue inside this home. And we are aware that their only option is to let peace reign.
The PDP is in crisis as a result of the former vice president Atiku Abubakar’s victory over Wike and 12 other candidates at the party’s national convention in May 2022 to become the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.
Wike and his allies are demanding that Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national chairman, be replaced with a southerner in order to address the “regional imbalance” in the PDP given that Messrs.
Atiku and Ayu are both northerners. Wike and his allies are unhappy with the primary’s results.

In addition to Wike and Ortom, the G5 also includes Ifeanyi Ugwanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Seyi Makinde (Oyo).
The G5 governors withdrew from the PDP presidential campaign council after being appointed to it and have since abstained from party gatherings.
