Why Tinubu Should Rule For 8 Years – PDP G5 Governors | READ DETAILS
The Peoples Democratic Party’s Group of 5 (G5) governors which comprises of four immediate past governors and a sitting governor, have described President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a seasoned administrator adding that they would support his 2027 presidential ambition.
This was announced on Sunday, by the immediate past governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom at a luncheon hosted by the immediate past governor of Rivers state and the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Ortom in his speech said the G5 has no regret for supporting Tinubu’s victory in the last poll, declaring that the group will again back the ex-Lagos state governor for a second term in office as Nigeria’s President.
According to Ortom, the G5 was created for the production of a president from the southern extraction and their aim has been achieved with the emergence of Tinubu as president.
Ortom described Tinubu as a seasoned administrator and should serve for eight years.
In his words;
“If we work to ensure Bola Ahmed succeeds, there will be tomorrow for anybody to even contest the election at all.
“Our leader, Nyesom Wike, has already made a declaration that in 2027, we are supporting President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We have nowhere to go because that is what Nigerians believe. Even the past administration that took Nigeria from top to bottom, we allowed them to work for eight years. So, why can’t a seasoned administrator in the person President Bola Ahmed Tinubu rule us for eight years?” he asked, assuring Nigerians that Tinubu will fix security, economy and other critical areas of challenge to the citizens.”
The G5 include;
- Nyesom Wike – immediate past governor of Rivers state.
- Seyi Makinde – current governor of Oyo state.
- Samuel Ortom – immediate past governor of Benue state.
