The spokesman of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Daniel Bwala, has said that Governor Nyesom Wike’s non-support will not affect the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s chances of winning next year’s election.

Wike and his allies, better known as the G5, have been in conflict with the leadership of the main opposition party since the presidential primary.

Wike lost to Atiku Abubakar in the exercise although he alleged that the election was not fair and since then, he has been insisting on the resignation of the PDP national chairman Iyorchia Ayu.

The G5 has also pulled out of the party’s presidential campaign, maintaining that Atiku and Ayu are from the same region of the country.

However, speaking on Wednesday, Bwala condemned the move, saying the party is determined to win next year’s presidential election.

“Our party is poised to win the election. Wike’s non-participation would affect a little bit of the margin. So, if we are supposed to win with nine million votes or eight million votes, it may reduce to six million votes or something like that”.

“But this victory is destined by God and I can tell you that there can be conspiracy and collaboration or anything. We know the Electoral Amendment Act and what it brings. We saw it in Osun where some members of our party even worked against the party in that state.”

“But what happened? The ‘Dancing Senator’ (Ademola Adeleke) danced his way to victory because the people spoke and their voices were held. This is how we are going to be looking at this election because the bigger picture is what we are looking at. Have you not seen the multi-dimensional poverty index?”

Bwala also claimed that Governor Wike “chased” the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, Governor Dave Umahi, and others out of the PDP.

He, however, maintained that the Atiku is committed to uniting Nigeria despite the crisis in the party.
