The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said that Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is devoted to the party and is after its victory in the presidential poll come the election in February 2023.
In a statement signed by Paul Ibe his spokesperson, Atiku cautioned against talks that’ll wrongly portray Wike as orchestrating disunion in the PDP.
“All the leaders of the party, including especially the governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Nyesom Wike and all governors of the PDP are united in working for the victory of the PDP in next year’s general election across board.
“What is at stake in the next year’s election is the future of Nigeria and all leaders and members of the PDP are on the same page in the mission to rescue Nigeria from the stranglehold of the APC,” Atiku’s statement reads in part.
Wike and Atiku met in London, United Kingdom (UK) on Thursday, to resolve their differences. The disparity arose from Atiku’s choice of running mate (Ifeanyi Okowa) following the May presidential primary election.
