Former Vice President and candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has set up a committee to pacify and woo the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and some other aggrieved members of the party.
The initiative was instituted by Atiku based on the need to go into the 2023 general elections with a united front.
Wike, Okowa and Udom Emmanuel had appeared before the party’s screening panel that determined a vice-presidential candidate to the PDP presidential flagbearer.
Okowa was nominated by the PDP presidential candidate after rumours had it that Wike had been selected by the party advisory committee as the vice-presidential candidate the day before.
Reports have it that Wike’s camp is not happy with the outcome of the selection process and may not work with the PDP candidate in the 2023 election.
