According to Ibe, Atiku advocated for the PDP to allocate the 2023 presidential ticket to the Southeast region. However, Wike opposed this proposal, which ultimately led to Obi’s exit from the party. Despite Atiku’s preference for zoning the ticket to the Southeast, Wike’s influence prevailed, influencing the course of events within the party. Peter Obi, who previously served as the vice presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 presidential election, later shifted allegiance to the Labour Party (LP) in anticipation of the 2023 presidential race.

Ibe emphasized Atiku’s willingness to step aside if the party agreed to zone the presidential ticket to the Southeast. However, Wike’s opposition to this proposal hindered Atiku’s intentions, as the minister advocated for a broader South zoning rather than specifically to the Southeast. Highlighting Wike’s resistance to the Southeast zoning, Ibe explained that the minister believed a broader South zoning would better position him to secure the party’s presidential ticket.

Hear him: “Wike frustrated that effort because he believed that if it was zoned to the south, not the southeast, he would be in the best position to be able to get the ticket.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
