Wike is a political entertainer, have no bearing — powerful PDP senator rubbishes G5 governors
Senator Francis Fadahunsi of the Osun East Senatorial District has stated that the activities of the G5 governors led by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike have no bearing on the Peoples Democratic Party.
Fahahusi commented on the PDP crisis through his media aide, Sam-Segun Progress, in Osogbo on Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters, he insisted that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, would easily win the presidency in 2023.
According to him, Wike and his group have turned themselves into political entertainers in order to gain attention, and they risk losing relevance within the PDP unless they reverse their course.
We don’t have anything to fear (about the crises in PDP). They are now political entertainers who are entertaining their own subjects as slaves used to entertain colonial masters. When you destroy your house and you want to come my own house, I will not trust you.
Other governors who are members of the G5 besides Wike are Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Seyi Makinde.
The G5 governors, who were appointed to the PDP presidential campaign council, resigned and boycotted the party’s inauguration.
As a condition for supporting Atiku in 2023, they are demanding the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
