Walid Jibrin, the PDP’s board of trustees chairman, has stated that they will take whatever necessary measures to prevent Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, from leaving the party.
This was said by Jibrin on Monday when he spoke to media in Kaduna.
In the PDP presidential primary, Wike came in second place against former vice president Atiku Abubakar.
Wike accused party members from the south of “betrayal” after his defeat.
His annoyance increased when Atiku chose Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State, as his running partner instead of him.
Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidates of the Labour Group (LP) and New Nigeria Peoples Party, met Wike after these events, leading to suspicion that Wike may leave the opposition party (NNPP), respectively.
But Jibrin said: “We in PDP know how to solve our problems. We know that Governor Nyesom Wike may not be happy.
“It is the intention of this party to constitute a reconciliation committee that will meet Wike to talk to him, appeal to him, and pray that he will not leave our party.”
Jibrin described Wike as “a great man who has been fighting for the party, and the party will not want to see him move to another party”.
“We will all visit Wike together and if it means kneeling to Wike, we will kneel for him,” the BoT chairman added.
