Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has stated that the G-5 governors would be remembered positively for standing up for equality, justice, and fairness despite their defeats on February 25.
Recall that the governors elected under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), known as the infamous G-5, failed to win their respective senatorial bids.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, and Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State all lost their respective senatorial districts during the election.
Speaking at a media chat with few journalists on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, the G-5 leader, Nyesom Wike, said that even if the group’s members failed to win their elections, history would still be kind to them since they helped produce a president from the South.
He said, “Ortom said even if he loses his senatorial election, let equity, justice and fairness prevail. He may not gain it now. But history will be kind to him.
“Same applies to Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu. Makinde said even if he lost his governorship ambition, he was interested in the unity of Nigeria”.
