How Wike, 4 other governors cause Atiku, PDP lost in 2023 presidential election

Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Wike was considered one of the strong governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) when he led four other governors under the aegis of the G5-Governors against the leadership of the party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The five governors led by Wike had called for equity and justice within the leadership structure of the PDP, but Atiku and the then national chairman of the party, Iyorcha Ayu, insisted that the presidential candidate and national chairman must remain in the north, a development the governors argued was against the party.

Wike vowed that another party would win the presidential election in his state and that the PDP would still win the governorship election in Rivers.

In the end, Atiku and the PDP lost the presidential election in the five states controlled by the G5 governors and subsequently lost the election to President Bola Tinubu.

Wike, a minister under the ruling APC, said the actions of Atiku and Tambuwal were the reasons for the party’s failure.

My name is Precious Etim. I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better.
