Some G5 governors working for Tinubu – Onanuga

SPOKESPERSON for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) Bayo Onanuga has said some G5 governors of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are working for Bola Tinubu.

He disclosed this during a Twitter Space held by The ICIR on Saturday, February 11.

“We are very optimistic about the coming election we are going to hold in two weeks. We are going to win, all these talk about a run-off, we are going to win at the first ballot.

“Election in this world today is almost mathematical. We have 21 governors, we have governors of the opposition G5, many of them working with our candidate,” Onanuga said.

The G5 governors, who are aggrieved members of the PDP, have withheld support for their party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar since his victory at the primaries.

    Led by Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, the governors have kicked against the imbalance in the party’s leadership, resulting from the presidential candidate and national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, being from the same region.

    Onanuga also noted that some other opposition governors who were yet to openly declare their support for the APC had given assurance that they would influence the elections in favour of the party.

    He expressed confidence that Tinubu would win the elections, despite several online polls which have suggested otherwise.

    Stating that the polls lack integrity and empirical evidence, Onanuga said the APC had conducted its own surveys, which assured of the party’s victory.
