The People Democratic Party (PDP) is currently in serious crisis following the emergence of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the party’s presidential candidate and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as the running mate.
This has led to some governors openly speaking against the leadership of the party and the presidential candidate. An example is former governor Ayodele Fayose’s outburst against the party leadership for going for a northern presidential candidate when the zoning agreement was for a southern presidential candidate.
Several governors in the party have not fully shown their support for the party’s presidential candidate due to the disregard for the zoning formula by the party’s leadership. One of the governors Is Nyesom Wike of Rivers state who was a presidential aspirant during the party’s primary election that produced Atiku as candidate. Wike has been at loggerheads with the party leadership since the presidential primary, it became worse when Governor Ifeanyi Okowa became the running mate despite the fact that he was nominated and should have ordinarily been compensated with the position.
The latest development is the demands made from Governor Wike’s camp and some other governors if the party wants them to support the presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential election. They requested that the national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu steps down from his position and allow a southerner to become the chairman because the party can’t have a northern national chairman and a northern presidential candidate.
Following these happenings in the PDP, it is important to take a look at the prophetic warnings of Primate Elijah Ayodele which he released in March 2022.
Primate Ayodele made it known that some governors want to break the party and that the party must be careful of factions. He explained that the national chairman will make efforts but the cabals in the party, who are mostly the governors, will frustrate him. He noted that they will blackmail him and reduce him to nothing.
These were his words
“Some governors want to break the PDP, the party must be careful of the faction because it will lead the party to loss. There are cabals in the PDP too and they will lead the party to a crisis.
“The national chairman will want to make efforts but the cabals will frustrate him. They will blackmail him and want to reduce him to nothing as they did to Uche Secondus but in another dimension. They will not appreciate his efforts.” (https://dailypost.ng/2022/03/15/pdp-crisis-cabals-govs-will-blackmail-nat-chairman-ayu-break-party-primate-ayodele/)
With the situation in PDP, it’s obvious that the warnings of Primate Elijah Ayodele are fast coming to pass exactly the way he put them. The governors have threatened to break the party with the demands made and if they are not meant, definitely they will shift their support to other presidential aspirants which will lead to loss for the party as Primate Ayodele already warned.
The national chairman too is already getting frustrated, he has been openly blackmailed by some of the governors and if the demands made by the governors are met, he will have no choice than step down from his position as the party chairman, reducing him to nothing, just as Primate Ayodele warned.
