Makinde defies G5, agrees to lead Atiku’s Ibadan rally

In a shocking development, the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has reportedly joined the Atiku/Okowa campaign train.

Legit reported that Makinde, who is a member of the G-5 governors led by the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, will be leading the campaign rally of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in Ibadan.

The ex-deputy governor of Oyo state, Hazeem Gbolarumi, who is a staunch rival of the incumbent has been hinted to be present at the upcoming presidential rally also.

It was gathered that all the candidates of the party at all levels will be formally presented at the occasion.

Makinde, who is the youth leader of the G-5 Forum has always insisted that right things must be done for the party to reclaim its right of place at the national level, especially in the area of strict adherence to the principle of zoning.

His stance has led to factionalization of the state chapter of the party, as other chieftains of the party in their argument submitted that it is only the NEC of the party that has power to remove the PDP national chairman, Iyorcha Ayu, not Atiku.

However, with the present development, normalcy has reportedly returned to the party, as all the factions have agreed to put aside their differences and work for the common goals of the party at all levels.
