Ikpeazu’s G5 membership splits Abia PDP

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s membership of the G5 is tearing the Abia State Peoples Democratic Party and the Atiku campaign team apart.

The G5, also called the Integrity Group, are the five aggrieved governors of the PDP, consisting of Ikpeazu, Nyesome Wike of Rivers, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Samuel Ortom of Benue, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu.

The PDP Atiku Presidential campaign spokesperson in Abia State, Chief Kingsley Megwara, had advised Ikpeazu to concentrate more on his ambition to represent the people of Abia South in the Senate in 2023.


However, the advice did not go down well with Abia PDP.

The state PDP Vice Chairman/Acting State Publicity Secretary, Abraham Amah, in a statement on Wednesday, said the advice was “a gambit to include himself into the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation by excluding those that have staunchly laboured and supported the presidential candidate of the PDP” and that “he should have a rethink because it will not work.”

“It came to us as a rude shock that Kingsley Megwara, who has not for once either in writing, interview, or any other medium lent his voice as an Abian, South Easterner or Southern Nigerian to galvanise support for the presidential candidate of the PDP, could rudely introduce himself into the Atiku Abubakar presidential arena as a spokesperson by talking about a non-related issue as the chances of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu’s senatorial bid.

“For emphasis, let it be known that Dr Okezie Ikpeazu is on ground in Abia State and Abia South Senatorial District.


“It is amazing that a man of Megwara’s political standing will not understand right now that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar needs Dr Okezie Ikpeazu’s endorsement to win Abia, not the other way around, as he ignorantly opined.”

When contacted through the telephone, Megwara said, “That was my candid advice and I stand by it.”
