17 PDP gov candidates visit Wike in Rivers

About 17 governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party met with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, behind closed doors on Tuesday.

The candidates were said to have arrived in Port Harcourt at about 8 pm and immediately went into the meeting with their host.

A source from Government House, Port Harcourt, said the governorship hopefuls from Katsina, Sokoto, Jigawa, Kaduna, and 13 other states met with Wike at his private residence in Rumueprikon, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area.

Though what was discussed in the meeting was not disclosed, there were indications that it could be linked to the 2023 elections and the party’s chances given the current crisis rocking it.

The source, who pleaded anonymity, said the candidates were pleading with Wike to support the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, his running mate, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, as well as the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
