The camp of Governor Nyesom Wike in the Peoples Democratic Party has  opted out
from participating in the presidential campaign of the party for the 2023 elections.

The group made its position known after a  meeting which started at about 7pm last night and ended by past 2am this morning at the private residence of Wike in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Although some members of the group were recently appointed as leaders and members of the campaign council for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, they said none of them will participate in whatever capacity unless the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, resigns for a southern candidate.

Present at the meeting held at Wike’s residence in Port Harcourt were  Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State; former Governors Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti, Donald Duke of Cross River, Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe and Jonah Jang of Plateau, former Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke.

Others at the meeting  were Chief Olabode George, Jerry Gana; South-South Chairman of the PDP, Dan Orbih; former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chibudom Nwuche; Senator Suleiman Nazif and Hon.  Nnenna Ukeje.
