2023: Why tough time awaits Oshiomhole in February over his senatorial ambition

Meanwhile, Adams Oshiomhole, the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and ex-Governor of Edo state, would be facing a tough time in the February 25 national assembly election.

Oshiomhole is contesting for Edo north senatorial seat in the forthcoming election but his major contender is a former political ally.

Also, because there won’t be a governorship election in the state, the central stage for the 2023 election in the state is the national assembly election.

More Trouble for Atiku as 2 PDP Governors Apart from Wike's Camp Reportedly Set to Dump Him

A few weeks before the 2023 general election, there are speculations that two Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors, apart from the G5 group, are threatening to withdraw their support for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The national chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Professor Rufai Ahmed Alkali, made the claim while addressing newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, January 31.

He was reacting to Atiku’s claim that he was in talks with the NNPP presidential candidate.

“Five governors are not with Atiku. These governors are coming from powerful states. The two others have been sending messages that they will not support Atiku.

“We thought that anyone contesting an election should put his house together. We left the PDP because we knew it would implode. It is not the same party as yesterday. In the next one week, some will leave the PDP,” Alkali said.

Port Harcourt, Rivers state – Governor Nyesom Wike has withdrawn the approval he granted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council to use the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium for Atiku Abubakar’s rally.

The Rivers state governor cancelled the approval in a letter dated Tuesday, January 31 written by the commissioner for sports, Christopher Green, The Nation reported.

Legit.ng gathers that the letter was addressed to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, who is the director-general of the PDP Presidential Council.

PDP campaign allegedly planning to share venue with Rivers APC

The letter accused the Rivers Presidential Campaign Organisation of planning to share the use of the facility with a “faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by Tonye Cole”.

The letter said:

“Credible intelligence available to the government of Rivers State and recent developments now show that your Presidential Campaign Organisation is working in collaboration and in cahoot with a faction of the APC led by Tonye Patrick Cole and that it is the intention of your presidential campaign organisation to accommodate and share the approved facility for your campaign with the said faction of the APC.

“Government records show that the activities of the APC in Rivers have always been married by violence due largely to irreconcilable internal conflicts within the party including shootings and killings in the course of protest arising from the nomination process of delegates for primaries and detonation of explosives in the course of campaigns”.

The state government said it withdrew the approval because it would not risk damage to a state prized asset like the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium that could arise from the alleged planned collaboration with Toney Cole-led APC.

Rivers PDP reacts

Reacting, the spokesperson of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers, Leloonu Nwibubase, confirmed the development.

He said the PDP was not surprised by Governor Wike’s action. According to him, the approval earlier granted by the Rivers state governor was a Greek gift.

“We will speak to the teeming PDP supporters and supporters of our presidential candidate in due course. We will continue with our campaign.

“We are very sure that the ultimate goal is for Rivers to vote Atiku Abubakar as their Presidential Candidate and that we will succeed. We will unveil our options,” he said.

PDP crisis worsens as Wike makes another strong allegation against Iyorchia Ayu

In another report, Governor Wike accused Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP national chairman, of ordering lawyers handling some of the party’s cases in Rivers state to withdraw their legal representations.

The Rivers governor described the alleged directive as anti-party, saying such acts would beget a corresponding reaction from the state chapter of the party.

He said this at the State School premises, Okehi 1, the venue of the Rivers state PDP campaign inauguration in Etche local government area on Monday, January 30.
