However, Emmanuel, who doubles as the chairman of the PDP'S presidential campaign council, stated that having learnt from its mistakes, the party will make efforts to appease aggrieved members (such as Governors Wike, Ortom, Makinde, Ikpeazu, and Ugwuanyi).

He even said the PDP is ready to beg such chieftains in the name of making peace for common good, The Cable added.

His words:

“Every single person is important in politics, not to talk of when you’re talking about very big men. Small men like us will go and prostrate ourselves before them: please oh, big men, don’t let us down. I’m into this game to win. I don’t think anybody will get to this point and be doing permutation. What kind of permutation?

“But they are not unhappy with me as Udom Emmanuel. Did they tell you they were unhappy with the party? Four of them are candidates of the party. They hold tickets of the party. They’re members of the party; you are getting it wrong.
“Even spoons and plates hit themselves and create a lot of noise; that doesn’t mean they’ve broken. It doesn’t mean they’ve broken. I think that is the situation here. For the fact that people are unhappy, it is inevitable, definitely inevitable, with a large party like PDP. It is the largest party in the whole of Africa..."

Members of the G5 governors of the Peoples Democratic Party seem to be holding the opposition party by the jugular.

In a move to quell the growing rift between the G5 governors led by Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, other governors of the party will be meeting with the team.

Some governors from the south-south region of Nigeria elected under the platform of the PDP will be meeting with their G5 colleagues to resolve the crisis arising from the party's presidential primary.
