- The former national publicity secretary said PDP governors have seen the failure of the ruling party and will not support during the next general elections
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has been given what may come across as a devastating message from the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) hours after Governor Nyesom Wike's return from the United Kingdom (UK).
The message came on Friday, August 26, from a former national publicity secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan.
In his message to the ruling party on Friday, Ologbondiyan noted that Governor Wike will never work for the APC ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He claimed that Wike and his colleagues in the PDP have seen the failure of the APC and can never vote for it come 2023.
Ologbodiyan was quoted to have said:
“The assertion by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s placeholder, Ibrahim Masari, that PDP governors will vote for All Progressives Congress candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is lame. It is an assertion that is not predicated on fact and as such, it cannot be taken seriously by Nigerians.
“The PDP governors have no reason, and have no basis to go and vote for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in view of the fact that Nigerians have already distance themselves from the processes of the All Progressives Congress and Nigerians, upon whom the APC has become a burden in the last seven years, are looking for every way and means to reject them at the poll.
“So, it does not add up that governors of PDP who have seen the failure of the All Progressives Congress will vote for the APC. It doesn’t add up. Members of the PDP have dismissed the assertion (by Masari) because there is no truth in it; it is lame.”

In a related development, Wike had explained his motive for the closed-door sessions.
Speaking in Port Harcourt on Friday, August 26, Wike said the discussion centred on non-partisan topics, but on issues affecting everyone in the country.
Describing the meetings as fruitful to journalists and stating that Nigeria's leadership is bigger than one person or group, the Rivers governor noted that the ultimate plan is to make the country a better place for all in 2023.
