Dino Melaye, spokesman for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council, said today that Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and the G5 governors are about to commit political suicide by failing to support their party’s candidate in the 2023 election.
Melaye stated this in an interview with Arise TV today. Melaye believes that the five disgruntled governors’ refusal to support PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar is a step toward the end of their political careers.

Melaye boasted that Nigerians, including those in the All Progressives Congress (APC), have pledged to vote for the winning side (the Atiku/Okowa ticket), and that the G5 governors have no reason not to back Atiku in the upcoming election.

The G-5, which includes Governor Wike, Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), is demanding the resignation of the PDP’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

They challenged the party’s leadership to allow a Southerner to replace Ayu in the position.

However, in response to the governors’ actions ahead of the 2023 elections, Melaye stated on Friday that the disgruntled governors have no justification for withdrawing their support for Atiku.

He said: “They (the G-5 governors) have no reason whatsoever to say they’re not going to support the candidate of their party. But I’ve made the statement that if they fail to support the presidential candidate of their party, and they themselves are running for elections, then they should be ready to celebrate their political obituaries.

“Every part of this country, including their various States, candidates and party faithful, even APC members, have decided that they’re going to vote the winning team, and that is the Atiku-Okowa ticket.”

Melaye observed that about three of the aggrieved party chieftains are interested in going to the Senate, and one of them wants to return as governor under the PDP.

He said: “So I don’t know what diabolic means they will use to dump the presidential candidate of their party and then advocate for another candidate outside their party. That will be a new trend in politics globally.

“So I advise that they don’t go that way, because if they do, I want to say politically, they g5will be like a dying horse doing the last kick.”
