It would be recalled that Gov.Makinde voiced his displeasure against the emergence of the party’s chairman and presidential candidate from the same region.

According to him, the PDP cannot restructure Nigeria if it failed to observe inclusivity in its own internal affairs.

The internal rift has lasted for months since Gov. Makinde’s ally, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, lost the presidential primary election and was edged out of scheme in the selection of the vice presidential candidate.

Mr Wike has since publicly withdrawn his absolute loyalty to the party. “Rivers state will only vote candidates who have their interest at heart,” he says.
