2023: Makinde Makes Demand As He Reveals Candidate He’ll Vote For

On Wednesday, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State reaffirmed his support for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.

He stated that he and his supporters have no objections to supporting the candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

He did, however, demand that the PDP’s leadership structure be restructured to reflect the inclusiveness of all stakeholders.

Governor Makinde specifically demanded that Iyorchia Ayu resign as PDP National Chairman and be replaced by a southerner.

Rumours have circulated that Makinde, Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom, and Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu may abandon Atiku in order to form a coalition with Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike ahead of the 2023 election.

Wike became enraged with Atiku and the PDP leadership after the presidential candidate chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate, leaving Wike, who finished second in the party’s presidential primaries months ago, behind.

Several meetings to reconcile the party chieftains have failed, despite the fact that the PDP has made it clear that they are not giving up.

Another major issue causing stumbling blocks in the resolution is Wike’s and his allies’ call for the resignation of PDP national leaders Makinde, Ortom, and others.

At his welcome address today in Ibadan, Makinde said: “The truth is that we do not have any issue either with our party or our candidate. If there are challenges they must be tabled.

“Eight years of the All Progressives Congress have left us sharply divided. The issue is we must practice what we preach. If we want to unify Nigeria, we must unify the PDP first.”

He stressed that if the PDP truly wants to restructure Nigeria, the party must have the willingness to bring inclusivity to the PDP.

“Do we have the capacity? The answer is resounding yes.

“The message from the South-West PDP is the South-West is asking that the National Working Committee of the PDP should be restructured.
