Why we met Wike in Port Harcourt – PDP governorship candidates

The 17 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidates who visited Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt on Tuesday have stated reasons for the visit.

They said that the meeting was part of effort to reconcile the warring parties within the party and end the rift among aggrieved members.

According to them, the meeting also served as an opportunity to deliberate on a winning strategy in next year’s general elections coming up in the country.

However, it was gathered that the meeting was held behind closed doors in Wike’s country home in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area and it spanned into late night

According to report, Wike had insisted that they were not in any position to resolve the crisis and therefore referred them back to the National Working Committee of the party.

But the PDP governorship candidate in Kaduna State, Isa Muhammed, who spoke on behalf of other candidates, said they decided to visit Wike, having previously heard from the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Muhammed described the meeting as fruitful but said that the details will be presented before the MWC for further deliberations.

“The talks were fruitful, open discussions with sincerity and we are home and dry. We discuss issues that border on the situation within the party and internal matter is not something you should look for details.

“We have discussed with the presidential candidate and we are here with our brother and friend and issues that border on what is happening have been sorted out.

“The issues have been resolved as far as I am concerned because we have heard from both sides. And we are going to meet with the National Working Committee to take a decision,” the Kaduna PDP governorship candidate said.
