Meet Southern Governor Who May Be Paired With Tambuwal To Fly Joint PDP Presidential Ticket

There have been several indications that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike may Push for joint Ticket with the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal. It was reliably gathered that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike's ambition to float a joint ticket on the Platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, with his Sokoto State Counterpart, Aminu Tambuwal, is almost being realised, according to one of his aides.

Speaking with THE WHISTLE on Saturday in Abuja, the aide who pleaded not to be named, hinted that, with the exit of Prince Uche Secondus as Chairman and emergence of Mr Ayu as Consensus Candidate for chairman, which would be affirmed at the Party's National Convention, slated to hold by October 30, Wike's Strategic Planning said in full swing.

Governor Wike and PDP Governors have succeeded to zone the Position of National Chairman of the PDP to the North and made the Presidency open to all Presidential Aspirants who might be interested to contest Presidential race under the Platform of the Party.

It should be recalled that the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom Played wonderful roles on the emergence of Ayu as National Chairman of the Party. It was Governor Ortom, who pushed for Ayu as National Chairman of the Party. The cordial relationship between Governor Wike, Ortom and Tambuwal is intact.

Ayu's emergence as Consensus National Chairman of the PDP was made easy because Tambuwal and Governor Wike initiated other Governors through Governor ortom. It should be recalled that Governor Tambuwal is the Chairman of the PDP Governor's forum and it will be easy for him to fly PDP Presidential joint ticket with Governor Wike.

Meanwhile, Saraki is Political Ally to Governor Wike and Atiku is also cordial to him but the micro-zoning may not favour Saraki. It should be recalled that Saraki is from North Central which is same geopolitical zone that Ayu, who is the National Chairman of the Party come from. With this, Wike might be Paired with Tambuwal to fly PDP Presidential ticket in 2023.
