Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, has urged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to talk with Peter Obi, a presidential candidate for the Labour Party, LP, before the 2023 elections.
Fayose encouraged the PDP leaders to work with Nyesom Wike’s wing of the party to resolve the conflict. Wike is the governor of the Rivers.
The former governor made the appeal while highlighting the possibility that PDP would lose the Southeast in the upcoming presidential election.
He made the point that all interests will be represented in the South-South.
Fayose emphasized the lack of work PDP has in the North-Central region, saying: “Neither PDP nor APC chose any candidate, either presidential or vice-presidential, from the north-central. The APC’s vice presidential candidate hails from the northeast.
The PDP leader also referred to Rabiu Kwankwaso, the NNPP’s presidential candidate, as a “semi-cancer.”
“Our party will receive Adamawa State. Remember that there is another Kwankwaso who is a semi-cancer and can rival northern figures.
Finding a means to make peace with these Wike people will be a good thing too, Fayose said Channels Television. “Reconciling or negotiating with Obi will be a good thing,” Fayose told Channels Television.
