The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) G-5 aggrieved governors did not agree to support Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in the recently concluded presidential election, according to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Wike said this on Wednesday during a live media event in Port Harcourt, the state capital. According to the governor of Rivers, the G-5 governors only came to an understanding and developed plans to assure the formation of a Southern President.
Quoting from part of his words, he said: “The Integrity Group never convened and declared that this particular person must be responsible.
Only the Southern President was decided upon. The southern President evolved as a result of the measures we developed. Our desire is for a southerner to become president.
We chose the Southern President when we arrived at our conference. We didn’t assert that it had to be this. We said that the Southern President must be behind anything you are doing. Justice, equity, and fairness were the goals of the G5”.
