Governors Nyesom Wike, Seyi Makinde and Samuel Ortom of Rivers, Oyo and Benue states, are to boycott the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign launch today in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, it was gathered.
The three aggrieved governors had similarly boycotted the inauguration of the campaign council at the Conference Centre, Abuja on September 28 along with their two colleagues, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu and Okezie Ikepeazu of Abia.
Makinde’s aide, who clarified that the Oyo governor will not attend the Uyo event, also emphasisied that he will not be represented.
The aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he could not speak for others four governors.
He said: “I can confirm to you that my governor will not be attending the campaign flag off. I can also say that I don’t see any of his four other colleagues in the same camp attending.
“You may recall that the five of them boycotted the official inauguration of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Abuja a few days ago. And if the five governors did not attend the Abuja inauguration, I don’t see any of them attending the Uyo event”.
