Keyamo said as a dying party (PDP) ravaged by the activities of the G-5 governors – Wike of Rivers, Makinde of Oyo, Ortom of Benue, Ugwuanyi of Enugu and Ikpeazu of Abia – Atiku and his presidential campaign council are hoping to create confusion in the camp of the ruling party.
He accused Atiku of hoping he would win the 2023 election by placing hope on APC and its governors in Northern region.
Keyamo said, “I feel really sorry for some who speak for the PDP; after the collapse of their campaign and the numbers not adding up for them, the only HOPE they’re giving their people is the lie that APC Govs are ‘secretly’ working for Atiku. Without attachment to APC, no hope for them!”
