Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president in 2023, said he is no longer concerned about the party’s ongoing leadership crisis.
Remember how the governors of Benue, Enugu, Abia, and Oyo State, as well as Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, and Samuel Ortom, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Okezie Ikpeazu, and Seyi Makinde, the governors of Enugu, each demanded the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
Wike and the other four disgruntled governors had pledged to withhold their support for Atiku in 2023 until Ayu resigned from his role as the party’s national chairman.
The attempts by party stakeholders to restore order after many meetings with Wike ended in failure failed terribly.
Speaking on the subject, the former vice president told VOA Hausa that he has moved on and that changing the party’s leadership at this time is not conceivable.
“We are yet to resolve the matter. But we have moved on, I don’t have any worries about that anymore.
“And at this junction, it’s improper to talk about leadership change in the party while elections are fast approaching,” Atiku said.
