A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, can’t win the 2023 presidential election without the support of Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Seyi Makinde of Oyo and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu states.

Mr Fani-Kayode made the declaration on his Twitter page while reacting to the recent defection of a former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau, alongside his supporters into the PDP in Kano.

According to the former minister, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, should start preparing their acceptance speech ahead of their victory at the 2023 poll.

The tweet read: “As PDP is celebrating the defection of Abubakar Shekau (Oops! Sorry, I meant Ibrahim Shekarau) into their party in Kano yesterday, Nyesome Wike flogged them mercilessly & gave them a death blow in PH by saying they wanted to come back “to loot” & “eat the remaining one”.

“The mighty triumvirate of Wike, Ugwuanyi & Makinde, (representing SS, SE & SW) are the backbone of PDP. Without them PDP is NOTHING! With Wike’s damning speech, BAT our much-loved “City Boy” & Kashim Shettima, the “Golden Boy” of Nig. politics, are cruising home to victory. They should start preparing their acceptance and swearing-in speeches today.”

Recall that in September 2021, Mr Fani-Kayode had defected to the APC, citing a crisis in the opposition part as his reason for the defection.

While meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa, Mr Fani-Kayode said that he was led by the Spirit of God in his decision and that he joined the APC to help for the unity of the country.

He informed the President that he was instrumental in the exit of three Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governors to the APC.

The governors he mentioned were Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Ben Ayade of Cross River State and Bello Matawale of Zamfara State.

He further said that he has friends across party line and was wooing the governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed to join the ruling party.
