2023: Akitu agrees to me Wike’s demands

The Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday met with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, in London as part of efforts to resolve the crisis with the governor.

The PUNCH gathered that Atiku pleaded with Wike to support him in the 2023 presidential election.

A close associate of the governor, who confided in The PUNCH, said the former Vice-President had agreed to meet all the demands of Wike.

Recall that the relationship between Atiku and Wike worsened a few months ago after the PDP presidential primary, which was won by the former Vice-President where Atiku reportedly shunned the recommendation of a PDP committee, which recommended Wike, who came second in the presidential primary, as the running mate.

Wike became resentful after Atiku chose the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate.

Although the PDP set up a panel to reconcile the two men, Wike insisted on the removal of the party’s Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
