The South South Youth Vanguard on Friday, asked the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike, to steer clear of the affairs of the PDP governors.
Wike had reportedly criticised the selection of Bauchi State governor, Alhaji Bala Mohammed as chairman of the PDP governors while speaking to state house correspondents after his PDP G-5 governors met with President Tinubu on Thursday.
Wike had argued that it was the turn of the South to produce chairman of the PDP governors forum.
But the Spokesperson of the group, Mr James Akpofure in a statement, said Wike should steer clear of the affairs of the forum. According to him, “Wike should know better than to bring his toxic politics to the PDPGF”
“Since inception of the forum, politics of zoning has never been a consideration. The PDP governors forum have always selected the most ranking governor for the position.
“To educate Mr. know-it-all Wike, the most ranking PDP governor is Gov. Obaseki of Edo State, followed by Gov. Makinde(Oyo), Gov. Fintiri(Adamawa) and Gov. Bala Mohammed. These governors can chose among themselves who will lead the forum,” Agofure said.
Continuing, the South South PDP Youth Vanguard told Wike to face his “personal job lobby” and leave the PDP alone. “Gov. Bala Mohammed is one person who can unite the aggrieved interests in our party right now, and we trust that was why his mates chose him.”
