Okowa stated this at a meeting on Wednesday with some other South-South PDP governors including Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Godwin Obaseki (Edo) and Douye Diri (Bayelsa) at the Government House, Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital.

According to Okowa, the PDP is concerned about the G5 and would want to carry them along in the party’s scheme of things.

The Delta governor assured that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the five aggrieved governors will meet soon.

He said, “We believe that we are one family. There are still issues and they are being attended to. Very soon, there will be a meeting between the presidential candidate with the G5 governors,” he said.

“They are part of the family and we are not going to allow them to go. So, obviously, everything is being put in place to reconcile all differences and move together as a family.”

Recall that the G5 led by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has been calling for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the party’s national chairman on the grounds that northerners should not hold the post and that of the flag bearer.<

But, after their (G5 governors) meeting in Lagos, the governors rebranded as the Integrity Group, while reinforcing its position not to support the presidential candidate of their party.
