Anyin Pius Anyin Pius the former, Nigeria former Senate President and secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) has denied being part of the G5 Governors.

VerseNews reports that the G5 is a group of aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors following the outcome of the party’s primaries and being led by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Anyim reacting to a front page story in Thisday Newspaper said in a press statement that he has remained faithful to his party, PDP after the party’s primaries.

The full statement reads; “I am sufficiently knowledgeable about the turn of events leading to and after the PDP Presidential primaries and have my own convictions why I should not, in any way, be part of the G5 Governors and Leaders.

“I want to state very clearly that after the Presidential Primaries, I chose to remain in PDP as a leader and responsible citizen of Nigeria, who should and indeed do place Nigeria over and above my personal interest.

“I must confess that this decision was reinforced by my experience from working with President Goodluck Jonathan. It may be necessary to state that since after the PDP Presidential Primaries, I have remained a faithful member of my party, the PDP and have no intention whatsoever to leave my party, moreso as one of my campaign credits during the primaries was that I have remained in the party since 1999 even when many others had moved out and back to the PDP many times.

“On the issue of His Excellency Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, I am to say that I was in the PDP Presidential Primaries with Peter Obi and others and at some point, all of us from South East met and resolved to work together, to ensure the zoning of the presidential position to South East and that whoever among us that got the ticket should be supported by the others.

“When the zoning failed, His Excellency Peter Obi pulled out and joined Labour Party while I continued to the end.

“To the credit of His Excellency Peter Obi, today, he has become a factor in the political equation of 2023 presidential election. I must state here and always that I AM PROUD OF HIS EXCELLENCY PETER OBI FOR DOING WHAT I COULD NOT DO.
