The 2023 presidential ambition of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, appears to have suffered a major setback as the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, led the aggrieved five Governors of the party or G-5 to woo the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, into their fold on Wednesday, Quest Times reliably gathered.

Recall that the governor had accused the PDP presidential candidate of working with a group of politicians from Bauchi to scuttle his 2023 re-election bid.
However, both have resolved their differences and resolved to work together for electoral victory in 2023 after a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday night.

But, speaking on behalf of the G-5 governors at the Ramat House in Bauchi, Governor Wike said whatever affects Governor Mohammed also affects them as a group, hence their resolve to reach out to him with support for his second term bid.
According to Wike, the Bauchi Governor has done so well that the people of the state will vote for him in the 2023 Governorship election, and that they felt that their support at this critical time was important to the governor.
