PDP to make fresh decision today after withdrawal of Wike and his allies

Following the withdrawal from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign council by Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike and his allies, the party leadership will now take a fresh decision on the issue.

Wike, his Oyo State counterpart, Seyi Makinde, and other chieftains like Bode George, Jonah Jang held a meeting early hours of Wednesday and resolved to withdraw completely from the party campaign activities for the 2023 elections.

They’re demanding the resignation of PDP national chairman Iyorchia Ayu and the position be given to someone from the south, for equity and fairness.

Following the development, PDP leadership went into an emergency meeting on Wednesday evening and would finalise on Thursday with a fresh decision.

The party spokesman, Debo Ologunagba confirmed to The PUNCH on Wednesday that the party had been meeting since Wike’s camp announced their withdrawal from the campaign council, adding that the National Working Committee would announce their decision today (Thursday).

“As a party, we need to take a firm position to rebuild and rebrand our party. We have been in a marathon meeting since morning (Wednesday). But one thing is clear, no one has rejected our presidential candidate; that is very important.

“The meeting will continue tomorrow (today) and after the meeting, we will make our position clear,’’ he stated.
