The governor of Rivers state is said to have received some members of the PDP in Rivers state on Tuesday, October 4 in other to end the ongoing crisis in the PDP. It is rumored that the PDP candidate, Atiku is leaving no stone unturned in making sure that peace returns to the party before the commencement of the PDP campaign.
At the inauguration of the PDP presidential campaign council a few days ago, Wike and his loyalists were said to have shunned the event due to the refusal of the party to accept their terms.
The camp of Wike had pulled out of the PDP presidential campaign council in a meeting held in Rivers state a few days ago. Those in attendance at the event include Governor Wike, Seyi Makinde, and a few other members of the PDP.
At the meeting, certain statements were made regarding the steps allegedly taken by the national chairman.
A member of the PDP who is part of Wike’ s camp whose name has been identified as Jang had said that Iyorchia Ayu met with Aminu Tambuwal after the Sokoto state governor stepped down for Atiku Abubakar at the presidential primary election.
He added that Aminu Tambuwal was called a national hero by the PDP chairman and this is a sign that the chairman has a plan in place for Atiku Abubakar against the interest of other candidates. A few weeks after the pull out of the camp from Atiku’ s campaign council, a statement has been made by the governor of Rivers state.
