The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday (today) arrived in Minna, Niger State capital, for a crucial meeting with former military President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB).
Naija News had reported earlier that the presidential hopeful and some governors on the platform of the nation’s main opposition party are expected to meet IBB today over the crisis rocking the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Recall that five aggrieved PDP governors had vowed to work against Atiku in the presidential race.
The Governors are Nyesom Wike (Rivers State), Samuel Ortom (Benue State), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia State), Seyi Makinde (Oyo State), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State).
Naija News understands that the Governors had condemned northern dominance in crucial positions in the party. One of their key demands is the call for the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
IBB is expected to host a closed-door meeting with the PDP chieftains today in Minna.
