The camp of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed optimism that the crisis within the party would be resolved ahead of the 2023 election.
Dele Momodu, the Director of Strategic Communication of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, said the agitation of the aggrieved G-5 governors would soon be over.
The G-5 governors comprise Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, and Ifeanyi Ugwanyi of Enugu State.
The Wike-led governors have been demanding the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the National Chairman of PDP.
They noted that the North can’t produce PDP’s presidential candidate and the National Chairman.
However, there are indications that former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been approached to reconcile all the aggrieved party members.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Momodu said Atiku’s camp is ready and open to a reconciliation with the governors.
Momodu said: “We’ve 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.”
