Details Of Atiku’s Meeting With Wike Emerge

Details of PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s meeting with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezemuo Wike have emerged.

The meeting which was held to resolve the crisis rocking the People’s Democratic Party failed to find a common ground.

The choice of Delta state Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate has raised dust and polarized the party.

Atiku met with Wike at the instance of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), led by Senator Walid Jibrin.

Atiku is reportedly of the opinion that he can win the 2023 presidential election without votes from Rivers state.

The meeting was hosted by former information and culture minister, Prof. Jerry Gana at his residence.

Atiku also reportedly boasted that PDP can win next year’s election without many votes from Rivers state.

Exuding confidence, Atiku recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari, who did not win Rivers State, relied on votes from Lagos, Kano and other strategic states to win the 2019 presidential poll.

He also said PDP ran into crisis because Wike allegedly monetised the presidential primary.
