2023: PDP Chieftain Discloses Only Solution To Atiku, Wike Rift

Some supporters of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar on Tuesday met in Abuja to discuss the solution to the crisis in the party.

A top PDP leader in Atiku’s camp who spoke with Vanguard on condition of anonymity said the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is underrating the capacity of the North.

The PDP leader further stated that the main opposition party will not dismantle its leadership because of the Rivers governor.

The source who accused Governor Wike of being involved in anti-party activities, however, said their camp will not move against him.

The source who attended the meeting said, “We will not dismantle our leadership structure at this stage because of Wike. What does he want? The South has the Vice President in PDP.

“Isn’t that fair enough? If they are saying the South must produce the President, it shouldn’t be the West but the Southeast in the spirit of equity. Unfortunately, he has Ortom, Makinde and Ikpeazu with him.

“Ortom is with him for economic reasons. Makinde, like Wike, has succeeded in offending PDP leaders in Oyo. He has stepped on many toes. If he’s not careful, his re-election may not be possible. He will only win if APC fields an unpopular candidate.

“Wike can’t kill PDP. Where was he in 1999? He is underrating the North. He doesn’t know the North is taking note of his utterances and actions. And they will pay him in their way.

“We are not giving in to his selfish demand. What does he want? He is already playing anti-party but we won’t move against him because we want peace.”
