Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal has threatened that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will use lawful avenues to deal with erring members of the party, such as the Rivers State Governor, Nyeson Wike and four of his colleagues from the party that are hobnobbing with the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In a statement warning the five governors over there alleged plan to go against the interests of the PDP, Governor Tambuwal said:  “the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will respond to the antics of five of its Governors currently being speculated to be in political alliance with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”

Tambuwal, whose Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Muhammad Bello signed the statement, said that there has been reports that the G-5 PDP Governors led by Governor Nyesom Wike have been meeting with Tinubu in London on the possibility of their teaming up to work for his victory in the forthcoming presidential elections.

“It is not a war of attrition. I always submit that in this our business, whatever it is that you are doing , even if you try to hide it, it will come out. You cannot plan and execute a political project in your own bedroom. You must come out with it.

“So, when my colleagues resolve on what to do, I think it is then that the party will now respond on whatever position they have taken.”

Since his emergence as the PDP presidential candidate earlier this year, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has faced apathy from five PDP governors under the aegis of the G5 or Integrity Group. The recalcitrant governors including Wike, Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Uguwanyi (Enugu), and Seyi Makinde (Oyo).

These governors insisted that the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, a northerner, must resign.

However, responding to allegations of meetings being held with the presidential candidate of the APC, Wike said on Friday that he and his allies in the G5 had not struck a deal with any presidential candidate ahead of next year’s election.
