PDP Chieftain Claims Atiku-Wike Spat A Mere Misunderstanding

Senator Walid Jibrin, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Board of Trustees, has warned his party’s members and all Nigerians against inciting animosity and confusion between the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, ahead of the 2023 general election.

According to the PDP chieftain, the current feud between the presidential candidate and Wike is merely a “misunderstanding” within the party.

This, he argued, was not insurmountable as the party worked to reconcile Atiku and Wike.

He, therefore, appealed members to extend their supports to the Reconciliation Committee set up by the party to resolve the feud.

The PDP Chieftain stated this in a statement obtained by ANAEDOONLINE.NG in Kaduna on Thursday.


Jibrin, a Second Republic Senator, also admonished party members to be more focused in working towards winning the 2023 general election.

He said, “I wish to call on all members of the PDP and all Nigerians to remain calm and never create bad blood and confusion on the state of our party noting that all efforts are on ground to reconciliate between Wike and Atiku.

“What is happening now should never be categorised as a problem but misunderstanding within the party.

“My strong advise is for us to give strong support to the present Reconciliation Committee set up to resolve all issues.

“At this period leading to the 2023 elections we should concentrate on how to win all positions to be contested and seriously adhere to the provisions of the party constitution.

“There after, the BoT, the highest advisory organ of the party, will give more encouragement leading to greater success of the PDP.”


ANAEDOONLINE.NG had reported that the rift between Atiku and Wike started after the Rivers State governor’s ambition of becoming the party’s vice-presidential candidate for the 2023 general election failed following the emergence of the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as Atiku’s running mate.
