PDP Crisis: Atiku, Wike Holds Fresh Meeting As Campaign Begins – [See Details]
Ahead of the 2023 general elections, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar reportedly held a fresh meeting with Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, to resolve their lingering misunderstanding, HausaToday learnt.
The meeting according to an insider who pleaded anonymity was held at the Asokoro Rivers Governors lodge in Abuja yesterday.
The source, according to DailyTrust, revealed that Wike responded to Wazirin Adamawa in an uncultured manner when they met in the afternoon on Thursday, September 29, 2022.
The meeting which reportedly witnessed the presence of top aides of the duo ended abruptly as Wike reminded Atiku of their conversation in London where he (the presidential candidate) promised to speak with PDP’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to get him to resign.
According to the source, many of those that followed Atiku to the meeting were not happy with Wike’s response to the reconciliation move.
The source, who insisted he was not authorised to speak, said Atiku opened the conversation, urging Wike to return fully to the party and work with other chieftains to win the 2023 election.
