‘Atiku Insisted It Was North’s Turn In 2015, Led PDP Break-up Under Jonathan’

The camp of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has accused former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Goodluck Jonathan, of being instrumental in the failure of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to get re-elected in 2015.

Naija News reports that Atiku alongside other PDP chieftains including Rotimi Amaechi, and Bukola Saraki, had dumped the then-ruling party for the APC back in 2014 to support Muhammadu Buhari. This led to Jonathan’s defeat in the election.

Wike’s camp, which is demanding the resignation of the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, and his replacement by a southern candidate, have accused Atiku of refusing to support Jonathan in 2015, claiming it was the turn of the north to produce Nigeria’s president.

Governor Wike, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, and others had pulled out of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Council until Ayu is removed or resigned.
