The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, his Oyo and Benue states counterparts – Seyi Makinde and Samuel Ortom Rivers will reportedly boycott the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign launch today in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.
Naija News recalls the three aggrieved governors had earlier shunned the inauguration of the campaign council at the Conference Centre, Abuja on September 28 along with their two colleagues – Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) and Okezie Ikepeazu (Abia).
Speaking on the presidential campaign launch, Makinde’s aide told the Nation that the Oyo governor will not attend the Uyo event and would also not send a representative.
The aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said he could not speak for the other four governors, but stated that there was a high possibility that they would shun the campaign.
He said: “I can confirm to you that my governor will not be attending the campaign flag off. I can also say that I don’t see any of his four other colleagues in the same camp attending.
You may recall that the five of them boycotted the official inauguration of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Abuja a few days ago. And if the five governors did not attend the Abuja inauguration, I don’t see any of them attending the Uyo event”.
