WIKE REFUSE TO FRATENISE WITH APC AS HE CALLED A TRUSE WITH PDP

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State met in Abuja on Thursday to resolve their differences over the presidential ticket tussle between them.

Atiku and Wike, who have been in battle since the PDP presidential primary met at Professor Jerry Gana house in the federal capital territory.

Atiku defeated Wike in the PDP primaries and the Rivers’ governor indicated interest in being the presidential running mate, but the former VP settled for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State.

This worsened the looming PDP crisis, as Wike fraternised with leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC). However, the PDP BoT met over the issue between Atiku and Wike and resolved to reconcile both men.

On Wednesday the BoT acting secretary of the committee Senator Abdul Ningi, told journalists that the members of the board would resolve the impasse and enable the party to present a common front during the elections.
