Atiku will share key positions evenly, says Campaign

The director general of the Atiku/Okowa CCP in Anambra state, Professor Obiora Okonkwo, said the DPP candidate would lead a national unity government, a Leadership report confirmed.

Okonkwo explains that the top six government posts include; President of the Senate, Speaker, House of Representatives, Vice President of the Senate, Vice President, Secretary of Government of the Federation (SGF), head of service and others, will be shared between the geopolitical zones but the Southeast will benefit more.

Atiku works in favor of the Southeast

In doing so, he said:

“The PDP will form a government of national unity. In 1999 we had two presidential candidates from the South and the PPD won outright. But we had a government of national unity”.

More trouble for Atiku as 2 PPD governors, plus Wike’s camp, reportedly deserted him.

With just weeks to go before the 2023 general election, there is speculation that two governors from the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), as well as the G5 group, are threatening to withdraw their support for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The National Chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Professor Rufai Ahmed Alkali, made the statement while addressing reporters in Abuja on Tuesday, January 31.

He was reacting to Atiku’s claim that he was in talks with the NNPP’s presidential candidate.

PDP crisis worsens as Wike makes another strong accusation against Iyorchia Ayu

In another report, Governor Wike accused Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP’s national chair, of ordering lawyers handling some of the party’s cases in Rivers State to withdraw their legal representation.

Rivers’ governor described the alleged directive as anti-party, saying such acts would draw a corresponding reaction from the party’s state chapter.

He said this at the State School premises, Okehi 1, the site of the Rivers State PDP campaign launch in the Etche local government area on Monday, January 30.
