Atiku positive of truce with governors

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation says it has not given up on its five aggrieved governors.

The opposition party yesterday expressed optimism about a possible truce with the Group of five (G5) governors, who left the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) because of the retention of Dr. Iyorchia Ayu as the party’s national chairman.

The governors are Nyesom Wike (Rivers); Seyi Makinke (Oyo); Samuel Ortom (Benue); Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu).

At a media briefing in Abuja yesterday, the Director of Strategic Communications of the Atiku/Okowa campaign, Dele Momodu, said the prospects of reconciliation were very bright.

According to him, the five governors have indicated a willingness to reconcile with Atiku and the leadership of the PDP, to work together in harmony.

Momodu said: “I am sure most of you must have heard that our governors, the Integrity Group, said yesterday that the window of reconciliation has not been shot permanently.

“We have been at it for some time trying to see how we can bring everybody under the same umbrella. So, hopefully, in the next couple of days and weeks, all of us will be able to work as one family. PDP is the biggest political family in Africa and we want it to remain so.”
