Atiku, Wike Finally Meet


By News Editor

The much touted meeting between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has finally taken place in Abuja.

Daily Trust reported that the two PDP leaders held a meeting at the residence of former Minister of Information, Prof. Jerry Gana in Abuja on Thursday, August 4, 2022.

Atiku and Wike have been embroiled in a long-running battle that dates back to the period before the PDP Presidential primary.


Their rivalry turned bitter after Atiku defeated Wike to emerge the PDP flag-bearer and still went ahead to pick Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate, despite a committee recommendation favouring the Rivers Governor.


Governor Wike was seen openly fraternising with politicians from opposition parties which sparked the rumour that he may be plotting his exit from the PDP.

However, the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) met over the disagreement between Atiku and Wike and resolved to find a reconciliation.


The BoT eventually met on Wednesday, August 3, 2022,


Senator Abdul Ningi, the acting secretary of the committee, told journalists after a meeting on Wednesday that members of the BoT would resolve the crisis which would allow the party go into the coming elections with a united house.

According to Daily Trust, the duo met for over an hour on Thursday and agreed to set aside their differences and work together.

The source added that they agree to set up a small committee to identify the areas where Wike and Atiku’s camps can work together.
