Gov Makinde Shuns Atiku Rally In Ibadan

Governor, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, and his G-5 colleagues on Thursday shunned the Ibadan rally held to garner support for the former vice president.

Noteworthy is that the Atiku rally in Ibadan comes ahead of the visit of the G5 governors to Oyo for Makinde’s reelection campaign inauguration on Thursday (today). The PDP G5 governors, apart from Makinde, include Governors Nyesom Wike, Samuel Ortom, Okezie Ikpeazu and Ifeanyi, Ugwuanyi of Rivers, Benue, Abia and Enugu States respectively.

Despite the absence of the G-5 members, other PDP chieftains, including a former Minister of Federal Capital Territory (State), Jumoke Akinjide, and a former Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Wole Oyelese, campaigned for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Others who campaigned for the former vice president under the auspices of National Mandate Group, Oyo state chapter, were former Minister of State for FCT, Hon. Olajumoke Akinjide; former Oyo Deputy Governor, Hazeem Gbolarumi, and Director Special Duty, PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Femi Babalola (Jogor), among others.

PDP youths, women and mobilisers from across the state were also seen on major streets in the Ibadan metropolis marching with banners and campaigning for Atiku.
