The People’s Democratic Party, PDP has been in a rigmarole of crisis ever since the conclusion of their primary elections in May 2022. In the latest episode of their crisis, the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike endorsed Sanwo-Olu ahead of Jandor.

The Peoples Democratic Party, Lagos State chapter, has condemned this endorsement of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu by his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike.

Speaking at the 22nd conference Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials on Tuesday, Wike declared his admiration for the incumbent governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and endorsed him for a second term in office.

He said, “If Sanwo-Olu is not doing (well), even if he belongs to my party, I will not come here. If you belong to my party and you are not doing well in governance, you won’t see me. If you don’t belong to my party and you are doing well, you will see me. Good governance is what I stand for. I will not regret to say that I am in support of you (Sanwo-Olu) for a second term. Others should not waste their time.

In a statement issued by Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, Wike was quoted as endorsing the Lagos State Governor for a second term in office. Reacting, the Lagos State PDP Chairman, Philip Aivoji, said the Rivers Governor’s action was condemnable.

He said “Such action is condemnable. It is not a welcomed development at all and it is not expected of a governor of that stature, a serving governor under PDP.

No matter the quarrel, whether you want Ayu to be removed, I don’t think that is the best way to handle it. As for me and all the leaders in Lagos State, we query such utterances. It is uncalled-for and unnecessary. When you are in PDP, you stand by the party,”

A statement later by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Hakeem Amode, said, “I would have “expressed disappointment if Wike had attended any event with a speaking role without his usual rant of a drowning man who will clutch at straws.”

The PDP presidential aspirant of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar has reportedly been flown out to France for medical concerns. Atiku was said to have fallen ill after his Arewa committee outing in Kaduna yesterday, complaining of body pains. It is uncertain when he will return to the campaign trail, or when the PDP crisis will come to an end.
