Atiku, Ayu, perfect plans against Wike’s camp

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has activated his plan to win the election in Rivers, Oyo, Benue, Abia, and Enugu states respectively.

This is following the insistence of the five state governors that the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, must resign as a condition for giving him their support.

Nyesom Wike of Rivers; Seyi Makinde of Oyo; as well as Governors Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu are all at loggerheads with Atiku and the party’s hierarchy.

Sources from the Atiku camp indicated that the presidential candidate has mapped out new strategies with which he intends to triumph in the states where the aforementioned governors hold sway as the chief executives.

One such plan is for the PDP presidential candidate and his party to shift focus to the three geopolitical zones in the North.

A reliable source, who spoke in confidence, said: “Atiku and PDP have activated Plan B on how to win the presidential election in the five states without the governors.

“We have done a ward-to-ward analysis of the voting pattern since 2015, and at a strategy meeting, it was agreed that the five governors can be beaten in their states.

“We concluded that the battle should be taken to Wike and others. Apart from Wike, we rated some of the governors as “weak”.
