Oyo PDP Crisis Over As Governor Makinde Officially Dumps Wike’s G-5, Agree To Lead Atiku Mega Rally In Ibadan
Governor Makinde has officially dumped Wike’s G-5 integrity group and agreed to lead Atiku Abubakar rally in Ibadan, Newsweekng reports.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will launch his 2023 presidential campaign in Oyo state on Thursday. The governor of Oyo state, Engr. Seyi Makinde, the former deputy governor of Oyo state, Alhaji Hazeem Gbolarumi, and the former minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Oloye Jumoke Akinjide, are anticipated to be present.
The party’s state chapter’s ongoing internal conflict has come to an end as a result of this outcome.
It was learned that all of the party’s candidates, at all levels, will be properly introduced at the event.
Especially in the area of tight adherence, Governor Makinde, the G-5 Forum’s young leader, has consistently stressed that the proper steps must be taken for the party to restore its rightful place at the national level.
His stance has led to factionalization of the state chapter of the party, as other chieftains of the party in their argument submitted that it is only the NEC of the party that has power to remove the national chairman, Iyorcha Ayu not Atiku.
However, with the present development, normalcy has returned to the party, as all the factions have agreed to put aside their differences and work for the common goals of the party at all levels.
