PDP Spokesperson Reveals Role of Nyesom Wike in Peter Obi’s Exit from Party

Atiku Abubakar Allegedly Pushed for Southeast Presidential Ticket, Wike's Opposition Highlighted


Paul Ibe, the spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar’s 2023 presidential campaign under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has disclosed Nyesom Wike’s alleged role in the departure of Peter Obi from the party. According to Ibe, Atiku had advocated for the presidential ticket to be zoned to the Southeast, but Wike’s opposing stance hindered this move.

Obi, who served as the PDP’s vice presidential candidate in the 2019 elections, parted ways with the party ahead of the 2023 elections, joining the Labour Party (LP). Despite securing significant votes in the subsequent elections, both the PDP and LP faced defeat to the All Progressives Congress (APC), exacerbating internal rifts within the opposition.

Ibe’s revelations shed light on the complexities within the PDP, with Atiku reportedly willing to step aside if the presidential ticket was zoned to the Southeast. However, Wike’s purported promotion of a broader southern zoning strategy, rather than specifically to the Southeast, allegedly thwarted Atiku’s efforts.

The implications of Wike’s opposition and Atiku’s willingness to accommodate regional interests underscore the ongoing power struggles within the PDP as the party seeks to regroup and strategize ahead of future electoral contests.
