The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has explained why Governor Nyesom Wike and governors who are supporting him have been fighting.
Makinde who vowed that the governors would continue to fight for their space inside the PDP said the desire to guarantee fairness as well as equity and justice has continued to propel their assault against the skewed system.
He vowed that nothing would prevent them as a group from continuing to speak truth to issues.
Why We Lost:
The Oyo State Governor who was speaking Wednesday, at Rumuche in the Emohua Local Government Area, acknowledged that the camp to which he belongs lost the last presidential primaries because of its defence of truth.
Makinde remarked, “we did not lose with our heads bowed. We lost knowing that we stood for the truth and we stood for what is good for this country.”
Wike, sure of support, Makinde says
He assured Governor Nyesom Wike who has become the symbol of the struggle against oppression of the unalloyed support of his friends.
Makinde said that his friends in different states will continue to stand with him no matter what happens.
“What I will say to you (Wike) is Aluta continua”, the Oyo State Governor noted, “We will continue to fight for our space within the PDP.”
He added, “we will continue to ensure that what is right for our people is given to our people.”
Dealing With PDP’s Internal Contradictions:
Makinde’s declaration on Wednesday is coming a few hours before the PDP is due to meet in Abuja.
A meeting has been called at Wadata Plaza to deal with the festering crisis within the party.
The party has been gradually torn into two, with supporters of the Presidential flag-bearer, Atiku Abubakar and Governor Wike lurking horns.
It is not clear if Governor Nyesom Wike would be part of the Abuja meeting.
The itinerary released by the Rivers State Government shows that he will be in Ahoada commissioning a campus of the Rivers State University on Thursday.
