Former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has claimed that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, would still have lost even with the backing of the G5 Governors.

Sani also said that those governors were helpless themselves, insisting they could not have made any difference.

His statement was contained in a post via his verified Twitter handle on Monday.

Recall that the G5 Governors refused to openly support Atiku in the just concluded February 25 presidential election.

The governors in the group were Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu ) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo).

Sani said the G5 Governors failed to realize the masses have gone beyond taking commanding instruction from Governors.

“Even if the G5 backed HE Atiku,it wouldn’t have made any difference.They couldn’t even help themselves talk less of helping their Presidential candidate.They failed to realise that the masses have gone beyond taking commanding instruction from Governors; Governors now beg,” he tweeted.
