PDP Not Treating Wike, Others Well – Nnamani Claims

"That Is My Hustle..." - Nnamani Speaks On Working For Tinubu, Dumping PDP After Inclusion In APC Campaign Council

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been condemned by the lawmaker representing Enugu East senatorial district, Chimaroke Nnamani, for ignoring the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and four governors as it commenced its presidential campaigns.

Naija News had earlier reported that the main opposition party officially flagged off its presidential campaign in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State on Monday. Governor Wike, Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Seyi Makinde (Oyo) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) were absent from the event yesterday. The aggrieved governors might have ignored the presidential campaign over their call for the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu to resign from office. Governor Wike’s camp had called for Ayu’s resignation over northern dominance in key positions in the party. Nnamani  in a statement released on Tuesday, said the leadership of PDP should have done more in a give-and-take manner to carry along the governors The statement was titled ‘2023 PDP Presidential Campaigns: Ignoring Five Governors, Discouraging – Sen Nnamani.’ Nnamani wrote, “Today, I go on record in total condemnation of the treatment of the five governors mostly from the southern states within the PDP. The Governors are our leaders and their humiliation rubs off on all of us.” The lawmaker disclosed that during his days, state governors were not treated badly. He cautioned against erecting parallel structures in the five governors’ states  stressing that “politics is local and the folks from these affected states parading with the PDP leadership will not deliver their polling booths without the governors. “Without the involvement of the governors that are our leaders, these mere cheerleaders and feel-good political operatives cannot deliver. “They can drag themselves from their home states to Abuja. Some are Abuja, permanent residents. They dress the meetings and colour the rallies, but that is what it is, political colour dressing.”
