Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to sanction Wike, Makinde, other aggrieved govs after polls
After the 2023 elections, the G5, a group of disgruntled Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors led by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom, will be sanctioned for anti-party activities.
The governors are upset with the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and the national leadership of the party.
In addition to Messrs. Ortom and Wike, the group includes Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), and Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia State.
After the May 2022 PDP presidential primary, where former vice president Atiku defeated Wike and others to become the party’s presidential candidate, the group was formed.
Wike and Makinde are believed to support Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), whereas Ortom has publicly endorsed Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party.
According to reports, Ikpeazu has backtracked and pledged his support for Atiku.
According to the party’s Deputy National Youth Leader, Timothy Osadolor, punishment for the G5 governors “is not a matter of if, but when.”
How else could they have worked against the party besides as they already have? If they didn’t know that there would be sanctions, they wouldn’t be rushing to the High Courts of their respective states to obtain ex-parte orders; they are simply buying time.
“They are aware that they have erred, and the law’s full wrath will fall upon them. “The question is not if, but when,” he said.
Osadolor continued, “After the election dust has settled, the party will revisit the issue. The party is king. Their problem will be addressed, regardless of its nature.
