The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation says it is happy that the G5 governors of the PDP are still in the party, despite their demand regarding the party’s leadership.
The G5 governors are Nyesom Wike, Samuel Ortom, Seyi Makinde, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and Okezie Ikpeazu.
The campaign organisation’s spokesman, Dele Momodu, said the governors still being in the party indicated there was still room for reconciliation.
Mr Momodu was fielding questions from journalists in Abuja on whether the council was concerned about Mr Wike’s apparent endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
Mr Momodu said he was aware that was not the first visit of Mr Obi to Port Harcourt and his host by Mr Wike.
“On the Issue of the governors, I am not clairvoyant. I am not a prophet. I have no idea whether they have dumped the party or not. The day they do, they will announce that they have dumped the party. We will all know. So far, so good, they are still in the party, and we are happy they are in the party,” he explained.
Mr Momodu added, “There is still room for reconciliation. All they are saying is that they are not happy, and we will continue to pray that peace will reign in the party. As for the Atiku campaign council, we remain steadfast, we remain focused, and nothing distracts our attention.”
On the National Bureau of Statistics report on poverty and unemployment, Mr Momodu said, “You can’t give what you don’t have, and that is why Atiku Abubakar is the best choice. What he has been able to do in public life, what he has been able to do in private life, when you look at them, you will know that he is the most experienced and prepared candidate in the race.”
He added, “Today, there is none close to him. He is the one that operated at the national level, so he knows what to do immediately.”
