Wike, PDP Crisis and the G5 Governors
There have been allegations that Wike has instructed his political allies in Rivers state to work for Tinubu.
Wike who is a member of the G5 of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has not been on good terms with his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The G5 is a group of five aggrieved PDP governors who have been consistent in their demand that Iyorchia Ayu step down as PDP national chairman for a southerner as a precondition for them to support the presidential ambition of Atiku.
