PDP Crisis Takes New Dimension As Governor Ikpeazu Reveals His Position Over Ayu's Resignation

Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia State and a dependable ally of Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has made clear how far he will go to back Wike despite the ongoing turmoil that is roiling the party.

Ikpeazu said in response to queries during an interview that he wouldn’t chose to support Wike if he decided to run against their party’s presidential candidate or running mate, according to Rivers Mirror.

The governor, however, declared that he would unquestionably support Wike if his cause is the inclusion of the South, as it is now.

I’m a party guy, Ikpeazu said. I will continue to be a member of the PDP. But it’s nice that I’m in a position where I can address the concerns that my backers would definitely have about me.

I won’t support Wike in his opposition to Atiku or Okowa. But I’ll support Wike in his steadfast insistence that the party admit representatives from the Southeast, South, and Southwest.

Atiku will still remain Governor Ikpeazu’s choice for president in 2023, he emphasized in a previous remark, adding that he had no personal issues with Atiku.
