Wike, Ortom, Aggrieved PDP Governors Rush To Bauchi To ‘Lure’ Bala To Their Side After His Alleged Rift With Atiku
Four of the five aggrieved governors elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP were today in Bauchi State allegedly, to lure Governor Bala Mohammed to their camp.
The Nation reports that the G-5 comprising Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu States arrived at the Bauchi Government House around 12:30.
The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, who is also part of the governors demanding the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, was, however, absent.
The development is coming amid a rift between Bala and the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Recall that Governor Bala who doubles as vice chairman of the Atiku Campaign Council in the Northeast, alleged that Atiku picked campaign coordinators from his State without consulting him.
In his letter to Ayu, Mohammed opened up on how he was hurt by Atiku and demanded an apology.
More details later.
