The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has some concerns following the recent visit of opposition party representatives, beginning with the governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
After losing the PDP’s presidential nomination to Atiku Abubakar and the chance to run as the party’s vice-presidential candidate, Wike has been mute on the PDP’s activities.
Recall that Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State, was chosen by former vice president Atiku to be his running mate.
In response to the PDP’s decision, representatives of the opposition party met with Wike in an effort to win him over to their cause before the general elections in 2023.
An ally of Wike who spoke with Newsmen on the view of the Rivers State Governor said his anger was increased when Atiku and the party ignored the recommendation of the advisory council to pick him as the vice-presidential candidate.
The ally said: “We’re weighing all options. Unfortunately, the party that refused to implement the recommendation of its committee on running mate will be talking about constituting a reconciliation committee. Who will take them seriously?”
He further stated that a crucial meeting of Wike’s camp earlier scheduled for this week has been shifted to next week.
The ally repeated, “we are weighing all options.”
