2023: PDP can win without Wike – Atiku

Although the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar and Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike met yesterday in Abuja at the instance of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), led by Senator Walid Jibrin, a source said it did not lead to a truce.

The meeting was hosted by former Information and Culture Minister Prof. Jerry Gana.

At a meeting with BoT members on Wednesday, Atiku said there was no cause for alarm if Wike did not want to fall in line with him.

He boasted that PDP can win next year’s election without many votes from Rivers State.

Exuding confidence, Atiku recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari, who did not win Rivers State, relied on votes from Lagos, Kano, and other strategic states to win the 2019 presidential poll.

He also said PDP ran into crisis because Wike allegedly monetized the presidential primary.

Wike, who was privy to what transpired at the BOT meeting, was said to have complained about Atiku’s recent comment about him.
