However, he has finally broken his silence, congratulating the winner, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and commending Governor Nyesom Wike, who came second.

Atiku emerged as the Presidential candidate of the PDP for the 2023 general election, having secured a total of 371 votes to defeat his closest challenger, Wike, who garnered 237 votes.

From the details of the results from the exercise: Atiku Abubakar – 371; Nyesom Wike – 237; Bukola Saraki – 70; Udom Emmanuel – 38; Balla Mohammed – 20;

Pius Anyim – 14; Sam Ohabunwa – 1; and Olivia Tariela scored 1. There were 12 void votes.

To this end, I congratulate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, our flag-bearer, and wish him and our party success in the general election."

“I congratulate former VP Atiku Abubakar on his emergence as the PDP presidential candidate. "I also commend Governor Nyesom Wike for remaining consistent in action and character,” Fayose tweeted.
