Wike, Atiku’s Loyalists Meet Over PDP Crisis

The reconciliation committee set up by the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has finally met in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Naija News gathered that Governor Ahmadu Fintiri led the Atiku’s team that met with Wike’s loyalists in the Government House, Port Harcourt, on Friday.

Recall that the PDP plunged into crisis after Atiku overlooked Wike and picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate for the presidential election.

The Rivers governor, who came second in the party’s presidential primary, has refused to openly back the presidential ambition of Atiku.

Some top members of the party who are unhappy with the PDP leadership have also joined Wike in calling for the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
