Popular Nigerian clergy and Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has cautioned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar as crisis continue to rock the party.
The priest advised the former vice President to humble himself and settle with the Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State-led group.
Primate Ayodele warned that the division within the PDP will jeopardize Atiku’s chances of winning the 2023 presidential election.
The man of God asked him not to ignore the five aggrieved governors in the party because their annoyance will affect his chances.
In a statement signed by his Media Aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele said: ‘’As for Atiku, he should humble himself and still persuade Wike.
“He can turn whatever is bad in Wike to good. He shouldn’t ignore these five governors because their annoyance can jeopardize his victory.
“He needs to re-strategise. He should ignore whoever asks him to neglect the governors.’’
The Integrity group led by Wike has been aggrieved with Atiku and the leadership of the PDP.
The group are agitating for equity in the zoning of leadership positions within the party.
They are against the North producing PDP presidential candidate and National Chairman.
Comprising governors from Oyo, Benue, Abia, and Enugu, the group wants the position of the PDP National Chairman zoned to the Southern part of the country.
