Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, his Bayelsa counterpart, Douye Diri, Chairman of the Osun State Gubernatorial National Campaign Council, and several of their colleagues were absent when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) inaugurated the campaign council on Wednesday.

Only the party’s vice presidential candidate and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, and Taraba Governor Darius Ishaku were present at the event.

Some of the 128 committee members included Governors Seyi Makinde, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Emmanuel Udom, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Darius Ishaku, Samuel Ortom, Godwin Obaseki, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, and Bala Mohammed were all absent at the Inauguration.

Acting National Chairman, Amb. Umar Damagum, stated just before the council’s inauguration that the council’s sole mandate is “to go to Osun State and win the election for us,” adding that “Osun is key to our presidential election.”

He said, “We have a very popular candidate in Osun and we have no reason not to win the election.

“So I believe with the caliber of people in this committee, I’m sure Osun will become ours, you will make a lot of sacrifices for the task ahead of you, engage stakeholders that are aggrieved.”
