There was a palpable fear about what might be the outcome of yet another round of meetings by the five aggrieved governors within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP fold, named: ‘G-5, as they are currently in the United Kingdom, UK to decide on who they will support as the 2023 presidential candidate. The five governors, Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), had been at loggerheads with the leadership of the party, over their insistence on Iyorchia Ayu’s resignation. Before the trip, they had foreclosed working for the presidential candidate of their party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. The G-5 Governors under the aegis of the Integrity Group, are leaving no stone unturned in driving home their grievances ahead of the 2023 general election. According to a close source who spoke to Vanguard on the condition of anonymity yesterday, the G-5 Governors are rooting for either the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, or the flagbearer of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi as their preferred choice. Recall that at a private meeting of three of the aggrieved governors with ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, he asked the G-5 to support Obi because no Igbo candidate has been elected president.
