Atiku recruits Mark, Ibori, Odili to ‘beg’ Wike

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has drafted new emissaries to plead with aggrieved Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.

They are One-time Senate President David Mark, and former governors James Ibori (Delta), and Peter Odili (Rivers).

The opposition party yesterday suspended its scheduled rallies in three states, barely three days after it launched its presidential campaign in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

Recall that Wike and his allies in the Ayu-must-go campaign boycotted the campaign kick-off.

It was learned that the lingering rift between Atiku and the anti-Ayu elements triggered the temporary suspension of the presidential campaign.

The campaign in Kebbi, Kaduna, and Zamfara was suspended to give the three new “arbitrators” a chance to undertake and conclude their assignment, a source told this reporter.

One of the PDP presidential campaign spokespersons, Kola Ologbondiyan, confirmed the cancellation of the rally in the three Northwest states.
