PDP Crisis: I met Wike five times without solution, Atiku laments
Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, claimed on Sunday that he had five meetings with Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike in Abuja, Port Harcourt, and London.
Atiku stated during the People’s Townhall meeting that the goal of the gathering was to resolve the PDP conflict.
But he said that there was no way to move the meeting forward.
Atiku said, “I have met Wike two times in Port Harcourt, two times in Abuja, one time in London, personally. It is not on my part; it is on the other side; I am waiting for him.”
After losing in the PDP’s presidential primary, Wike is upset with the party’s leaders.
The governor was initially upset that Atiku chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running partner instead of him.
Iyorchia Ayu’s resignation as the party’s national chairman was also demanded by Wike and the G-5 integrity group.
They stated that the national chairman and flagbearer of the party should not come from the North.
The national chairmanship should be assigned to the South, according to Wike and his group’s demands.
