The genesis of PDP crisis

The PDP had been plunged into crisis since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar, the opposition party's presidential candidate.

The G5 governors, also known as the integrity group, are calling for the resignation of the PDP national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to step aside and give room for another chairman from southern Nigeria to emerge.

Ayu, who had promised to step aside if a northern emerged as the PDP presidential candidate, had refused to keep to his words. At the same time, Atiku appeared to be backing him as he had never supported his resignation publicly.

Asari Dokubo rubbished Atiku's chances, endorses Tinubu

Legit.ng earlier reported that Asari Dokubo, the ex-militant leader, endorsed the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, ahead of the 2023 election.

The Rivers State-born activist said the record of the former Lagos state governor are identifiable credentials, and he has an edge above his peers in the 2023 presidential race.

However, Dokubo rubbishes the candidacy of Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and others contesting against Tinubu in the 2023 election.
