There’s insecurity in Nigeria because Buhari is weak – Shehu Sani The Informant247

G5 Governors failed themselves, not Atiku — Shehu Sani

A former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 blasts the five aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), otherwise known as the G5 Governors, for working against the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar in the just concluded February 25 presidential election.

Sani said the support of the 5 aggrieved governors would not have counted for Atiku, as they could not secure victory for themselves in the general elections.

Sani took to the micro blogging platform, Twitter to reveal that the support of the 5 aggrieved governors would not mean anything for Atiku as they themselves could not come victorious in the just concluded general elections.

“Even if the G5 backed HE Atiku, it wouldn’t have made any difference. They couldn’t even help themselves talk less of helping their Presidential candidate. They failed to realise that the masses have gone beyond taking commanding instruction from Governors; Governors now beg.”

Before the February 25 presidential election, the G5 Governors said the resignation of the national chairman of the party, Iyorcha Ayu was a precondition to support Atiku’s presidency.

The Governors said the party should not keep the chairmanship position of the party in the north, as the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku was already from the north.

They called for the resignation of the chairman, to enable the party zone the chairmanship position of the south.

But, the national leadership of the party ignored the demands of the aggrieved members till the day of the presidential election which took place on February 25, 2023.

The G5 PDP governors were:

Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia),

Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu),

Samuel Ortom (Benue),

Seyi Makinde (Oyo) and

Nyesom Wike (Rivers).
