Makinde is one of the aggrieved governors of the PDP who have vowed not to take part in Atiku's presidential campaign rally until the party's national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, resigns.

The governors are demanding a southern leadership role in the PDP leadership structure in the name of fairness and equity, stating that it is unconstitutional for the northern bloc to be both the presidential candidate and national chairman.
