The former governor of Edo State said Atiku lacks character and consistency having moved from the PDP to the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), back to the PDP and to the APC and finally to the PDP since 1999.

“For Atiku, if he is not the candidate, he takes a flight to Dubai. But you are talking of someone who upon leaving office, supported his wife rather than himself, talk of selfless service and gender equality.
“It speaks to character. When you have sense of belief, you cannot be jumping from one party to the other every other election,” he said.

Atiku is selfish, Oshiomhole alleged

The former governor said Atiku’s ambition is just about himself and not about Nigeria

He also said the 76-year-old Adamawa-born politician cannot be trusted as echoed by aggrieved PDP governors known as the G5 or the Integrity Group.

“PDP governors said we can’t trust him, every agreement we made with him, he broke it; he is a serial betrayer of agreements,” he added.

PDP crisis: Atiku set to make tough decision, to adopt powerful politician as southwest leader

As the crises facing the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rages on, the party's presidential candidate is said to have arrived at a far-reaching decision over the party leadership in the southwest region.

Atiku may have resolved to adopt the new governor of Osun, Ademola Adeleke, as the southwest leader of the party.

Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, is currently the party leader in the region, but Atiku, for some time now, has been in a running battle with the G5 governors, which has the former in its ranks.

Trouble for Tinubu, Oshiomhole as top PDP chieftain dresses them down over attack against Okowa

The 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has been condemned for his recent attack on the vice-presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ifeanyi Okowa.

The chief economic adviser to the Delta state government, Kingsley Emu, said Tinubu's description of Lagos state as an example of development is laughable.

Reacting to Tinubu, Adams Oshiomhole and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege's disparaging comments about Okowa over the weekend, Emu urged the former Lagos governor to tell the world how he managed the state's money.
