Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State are the other PDP G5 Governors.
The G5 are also demanding Iyorchia Ayu’s resignation as party chairman in an effort to purportedly lessen the North’s dominance of the PDP.
They are also unhappy that Atiku rejected Wike as his running mate.
However, there are signs that the crisis shaking the main opposition party may have been resolved by former military ruler General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd).
