Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), claimed on Wednesday that the PDP would produce at least 25 governors in the general elections of 2023.
This was stated by Ayu at the conclusion of an Abuja meeting with the party’s governorship candidates from 34 different states.
The PDP leaders’ continuous efforts to repair the issue in the main opposition party included the meeting.
Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, and his allies have called for the former Senate President to quit over his alleged involvement in the PDP turmoil that has beset the party since the end of its primary season in May.
The chairman, though, has vowed to hold on to his position until the conclusion of his term in 2025.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, reportedly met with Wike and his friends on Tuesday in the UK. These allies included the governors of Benue and Oyo states, Samuel Ortom and Seyi Makinde.
The PDP is already concerned that the governor was resolved to work against the party in the upcoming election as a result of the meeting.
Ayu said: “The candidates are coming together, uniting the party, and to discuss, even, the issues of reconciliation.
“The candidates came and expressed their concerns in their various states. Briefed us on the efforts they are making in their various states to win the elections.
“We want to return about 25 state governors or more as we used to have. So the mood in the party is excellent.
“We are very determined that we don’t just win at the national level, states and national assemblies, and state governorship. We want to return about 25 state governors or more as we used to have. So the mood in the party is excellent.”
