Atiku, Wike agree to set up joint consultation committee to resolve PDP crisis

The presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, have agreed to set up a joint consultation committee to resolve the crisis rocking the main opposition party ahead of the 2023 election.

WPTHAPPEN NEWS had earlier reported that Atiku and Wike met on Thursday behind closed doors at the private residence of Professor Jerry Gana, a member of the party’s Board of Trustees, BoT.

According to Vanguard, a source who confirmed the meeting said it was held in a very cordial atmosphere, with both men exchanging banters.

The source said: “The long-awaited meeting between our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, held at Professor Jerry Gana’s residence today (Thursday).

“They both agreed to set up a joint consultation committee made up of equal number of persons to thrash out the issues.

“This should be done between now and next week, after which they are expected to brief the various organs of the party.

“This is the first step towards the setting up of our Presidential Campaign Council.

“Very, very soon, all these challenges will be behind us and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will know their time in office is up for good.”

A source in Wike’s camp said: “Our principal is yet to brief me. But I know whatever decision he takes, he will reach out to us and we will collectively decide the way forward.

“We all agreed at our meeting that our collective political interests will be better served in the PDP.

“The party belongs to all of us what transpired before and after our primary is behind us now.”

Also contacted, Atiku’s Media Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe, said: “I cannot comment because I’m yet to be briefed by my principal.”
