Tinubu vs. Peter Obi: “Wike, Makinde, Ortom, and Others Will Endorse Candidate 24 Hours Before Election.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), often known as the G-5, will announce its presidential candidates a few hours before the February 25, 2023, general election, barring any amendments.
The G5 governors—Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia—rejected their party’s nominee, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, in January and have not publicly endorsed any of the presidential contenders since.

The Site News reports that the governors are expected to endorse either Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

A source close to one of the governors told The Guardian that Wike and his group “strategically changed their minds” from disclosing their presidential candidate in January because of “some recent political development.”

He said: “You know they are politicians and they have to react to some unforeseen issues. But they will inform their supporters who to vote for about 24 hours to the election. Also, don’t expect them to go on air to announce it but their supporters will get the message.”

The G5 governors who demanded the removal or resignation of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, have reportedly failed to arrive at a consensus on who to support for the upcoming election.

It was gathered that the inability of the embattled PDP governors to jointly endorse a presidential candidate might have forced them to keep silent and allow each to endorse any of the candidates.
