The crisis engulfing Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, seems to be escalating as Governors in the camp of Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike on Wednesday snubbed the official inauguration of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council.
The Governors include Samuel Ortom of Benue State; Seyi Makinde of Oyo State; Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State; Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and Wike.
Some other stakeholders believed to be loyal to Governor Wike were also absent at the inauguration which took place at the International Conference Centre, Abuja on Wednesday.
However, the remaining PDP Governors loyal to the party’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar attended the event.
They include: Governors Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State; Diri Duoye of Bayelsa State; Godwin Obaseki of Edo State; Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State; Darius Ishaku of Taraba State; Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State; and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State.
The Delta State governor and running mate to Atiku, Ifeanyi Okowa, was also present at the event.
