The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation has expressed optimism about a possible truce with the group of five Governors working against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

At a media briefing in Abuja, the Director of Strategic Communications of the Atiku/Okowa campaign, Chief Dele Momodu said the prospects of reconciliation were very bright.

According to him, the five Governors have indicated a willingness to reconcile with Atiku and the leadership of the PDP with a view to working together in harmony.

The five Governors in the G-5 are Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu).

Momodu said: “I am sure most of you must have heard that our Governors, the Integrity Group, said yesterday that the window of reconciliation has not been shot permanently.

“We have been at it for some time trying to see how we can bring everybody under the same umbrella. So hopefully, in the next couple of days and weeks, all of us will be able to work as one family. PDP is the biggest political family in Africa and we want it to remain so”.

The campaign spokesperson flayed what he described as incessant attacks on PDP supporters during rallies, citing recent cases in Kaduna and Maiduguri in which some people were reportedly injured.

He said the campaign organisation was in the process of making a formal report to the security agencies and the National Peace Committee (NPC) for appropriate actions.

Momodu described Atiku as the leadership candidate in the presidential race and that the fear of him winning the election has made his opponents jittery.

He said Atiku had held campaign rallies in four states so far, with resounding success, adding that the PDP will take its campaign to all the states in the federation.

Momodu described rallies as carnivals of ideas and not theatres of war, promising that the Atiku campaign would be more vigorous in the weeks ahead.

He challenged other presidential candidates who can match Atiku’s fitness to go ahead and hold their rallies.
