About two months after the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential primary, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, met behind closed doors in Abuja on Thursday.
Although the details of the meeting were still sketchy at the time of this report, sources in the PDP said Atiku and Wike met at the home of a former Minister of Information and National Orientation, Prof. Jerry Gana, signaling what observers saw as reconciliatory moves to appease the governor.
The source said, “Atiku and Wike met this (Thursday afternoon) at the residence of Jerry Gana. It was a good meeting, from what I gathered.
“They exchange pleasantries and they have resolved to move the reconciliation to the next stage.”
Asked if we can assume that Wike and Atiku have settled, the source said, “they have started the process; this started with a one-on-one interface.
“This will lead to a certain level and they can now resolve all the issues.”
The source also said discussions were still ongoing about the choice of Director-General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation.
When contacted, Atiku’s Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, declined comment.
