The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has met with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Atiku’s meeting with Wike took place in London on Thursday, hours after reports emerged that the duo is expected to meet in the UK.
Governors Samuel Ortom of Benue State; Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Abia State’s Okezie Ikpeazu were pictured together with Atiku and Wike during the meeting.
As of the time of this report, details of the meeting have not been officially disclosed but it is believed to be about the 2023 elections.
Wike and Atiku have been at loggerheads over the outcome of the PDP presidential primary which the latter won in May.
The Rivers State leader contested the election but lost to the former vice president. Wike had accused the party leaders of not following laid down rules in the election held in Abuja.
In the wake of the election, a committee had recommended Wike, among others, to pick as his running mate. But Atiku chose the Delta State governor Ifeanyi Okowa, a move that deepened the crisis.
