2023 presidency: PDP lost the moment it gave its ticket to another northerner
Meanwhile, Ogoegbunam Kingdom, a youth and women development advocate, says the decision of Governor Nyesom Wike and his allies to pull out of Atiku Abubakar’s campaign is properly justified because the south feels shortchanged in the opposition PDP.
The camp of Governor Wike recently withdrew from the Atiku campaign, insisting the decision will not be rescinded until the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, resigns.
Since Atiku, the PDP presidential candidate is from the north, Governor Wike and his allies said Ayu, who is also a northerner, must resign for a southerner to take over.
