Two Southern PDP Governors Who May Not Dump The Party For APC Before 2023 Polls

Some Governors under the Platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP may Choose to remain in the Party forever, even if all the Governors under the Platform of the Party should defect to the All Progressives Congress APC. It should be recalled that three PDP Governors dumped the Party for APC within two years. The three Governors that dumped the Party for APC are Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, the Governor of Cross Rivers State, Governor Ben Ayade and the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.

One of the PDP Leaders who may find it difficult to dump PDP for APC is the Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike. Governor Wike does not have good relationship with APC Leaders in the State. It should be recalled that Governor Wike and the former Governor of the State, Rotimi Amaechi are not cordial with each other. Therefore, Governor Wike may find it difficult to dump PDP for APC.

Recently, Some Leaders of APC dumped the Party for PDP in Rivers State. This was Part of Governor Wike's efforts to ensure to make PDP relevant in the State because it was Governor Wike that won the heart of APC Leaders into PDP in the State. It should be recalled that Governor Wike was one of the PDP Governors who clamoured for the removal of Secondus as National Chairman of the Party. Governor Wike is an influential Governor among the PDP Governors in Southsouth and he might not get such influence in APC.

Another Governor that may find it difficult to dump PDP for APC is the Governor of Edo State, Governor Godwin Obaseki. Obaseki might not be able to dump PDP for APC because he doesn't have good relationship with APC Leaders in the State. It should be recalled that Obaseki was denied second term Governorship Ticket under the Platform of APC and that was why he dumped the Party for PDP. The Former National Chairman of the Party, Adams Oshiomole and Governor Godwin Obaseki are not in good terms.

It was gathered that Oshiomole accused Obaseki for using fake certificate and he Pionered how Obaseki was denied Second Term Governorship Ticket in APC. Obaseki is well recognised in PDP and he can't leave the Party for APC before 2023 Polls. Obaseki may find it difficult to cope with APC Leaders, if he defects to APC. Both Obaseki and Wike may find it difficult to dump PDP for APC even if all the PDP Governors in Southsouth should leave PDP for APC before 2023 Polls.
