There is growing tension in the camp of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as his counterpart in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, meets with one of the aggrieved governors of his party.
Following his campaign in Enugu on Wednesday, January 11, Tinubu paid a courtesy visit to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi at the state house, a development that is unusual for the APC presidential candidate.

Ugwuanyi is one of the aggrieved governors of the PDP who are referred to as G5 or Integrity Group and have vowed not to take part in the presidential campaign of Atiku.
Other G5 of the PDP include Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Okezie Okpeazi of Abia, Seyi Makinde of Oyo and Samuel Ortom of Benue state.
It was recently reported that Tinubu made deal with 4 of the 5 aggrieved PDP governors in London but the former Lagos state governor denied having a deal with the Wike-led G5.
