PDP Crisis: Bwala Says Atiku’s Chances Will Not Be Affected by Wike’s Lack of Support

Governor Nyesom Wike’s lack of support, according to Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) spokesman Daniel Bwala, won’t have an impact on the Peoples Democratic Party‘s (PDP) chances of winning the election in 2018.

Since the presidential primary, Governor Wike and his allies, known as the G5, have been at odds with the main opposition party’s leadership. The former minister, who came in second to Atiku Abubakar, insists that PDP National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu resign because she believes the election was unfair. Insisting that Atiku and the PDP leader are from the same part of the nation, the group has also withdrawn from the party’s presidential campaign.

But Bwala downplayed the action, asserting that the party is well-positioned to triumph in the upcoming 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, that may reduce to six million votes or something like that,” he said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Wednesday.

“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?”

Additionally, according to Bwala, the governor of Rivers State “chased” Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), governor Dave Umahi, and other PDP members out of the party. Despite the crisis within the party, he insisted that Atiku is committed to uniting Nigeria.
