The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, would beg his counterpart from Rivers State, Nyesom Wike and his entourage, according to Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State and Chairman of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council.
Emmanuel claimed that the party had erred in how it approached the presidential elections and would thus beg Wike and his team.
While discussing the gap between the Wike-led group and the party, he revealed this.
In order for the PDP to win the elections in 2023, the governor declared that he and other party members are ready to bow down before the offended “great men” in the party.
“We’ll solve every problem. Every vote counts in an election; nobody can be removed.
“In politics, every single person matters, especially when talking about very large men. Small guys like us will go and bow down before them; large men, please don’t fail us.
“I want to win this game. Nobody, in my opinion, will be performing permutations at this stage. Which type of permutation?
But they aren’t angry at me because I’m Udom Emmanuel. Did they express to you their dissatisfaction with the party? Four of them are party candidates. They possess party tickets. You’re misrepresenting them because they are party members.
We all make mistakes, of course. I must also acknowledge that both as a group and as individuals, we have erred. But rest assured that we will not be destroyed by these errors, he assured ThisDay.
Since the PDP’s presidential primary elections, Wike and his G-5 group have been upset with the party’s leadership.
The governor was beaten out by Atiku for the position of PDP flagbearer.
Wike and his group have opposed the party’s rotation system since his defeat.
They demanded the resignation of PDP National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu and emphasized that it should not be acceptable for one zone to produce both the National Chairman and the party’s presidential candidate.
