PDP Is Working To Reconcile With G5 – Okowa

Ifeanyi Okowa, the vice presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated that the party is making serious efforts to make amends with the G5, a group of five disgruntled PDP governors.

Okowa said this while speaking at a meeting with some other South-South PDP governors including Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Godwin Obaseki (Edo), and Douye Diri (Bayelsa) at the Government House, Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital.

Okowa asserts that the PDP is worried about the G5 and would like to include them in the party’s overall plans.

The governor of Delta promised a meeting between PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and the five disgruntled governors.

He said, “We believe that we are one family. There are still issues and they are being attended to. Very soon, there will be a meeting between the presidential candidate with the G5 governors,” he said.

“They are part of the family and we are not going to allow them to go. So, obviously, everything is being put in place to reconcile all differences and move together as a family.”

Speaking at the meeting, Diri described the South-South as a stronghold of the PDP, saying that the party will emerge victorious at all levels in next year’s general election.

He said, “We are one. In a family, there are always disputes. Those disputes do not separate us. We will resolve them and we will continue to push on as one.”

“South-South is a PDP region. South-South is a place where no other party can contend except PDP. I assure you that in all the elections from the presidency to the governorship, the national assembly, and the state assembly, PDP will again triumph.”
