The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ifeanyi Okowa, on Monday spoke on the issue between the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike and the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Okowa while speaking on Atiku’s recent interview with Arise TV, said everything the former vice president said during the interview is the truth.
He, however, stated that Governor Wike is not lying, but it is important to air someone’s view when they are angry.
The vice presidential candidate also described Governor Wike as his friend, adding that they will find a way to talk.
He prayed that everything works in the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Okowa in an interview with BBC pidgin said, “We have been talking internally. Everything is being settled. You know that when something happens and everybody can’t agree, it’s settled bit by bit.
“That is what we are still working on from the inside. We are finding a way to talk. I will say, he is my friend, I am his friend, and we will find a way to talk.
“Atiku has said his version of what happened, and I am sure that version he said is the true position. I am also not saying that Wike is lying, but if someone carries their anger, it is important to air your views. For us at the party, it’s about how to bring everybody together, how all of us can work together. Wike is still a very important member of the party, he has worked so hard for the party as many of us have worked hard too, so we pray that everything comes together and we talk. I’m sure very soon we will be sitting down.”
