Panic In Wike’s Camp As Atiku Abubakar Divide Rivers PDP, Set Up Committee To Receive Him In Port Harcourt

2023 Warpath seems to be brewing amongst Politicians  in Rivers state Amid the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, crisis,  as Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has continued to associate with some top guns of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Wike has been meeting with APC’s chieftains, majorly from the Southwest, since the fallout that followed the PDP presidential primaries.

A source says fear grips Wike’s camp as His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, divides Rivers State, it will interest you to know that the Atiku’s camp in Rivers State is as strong as the PDP in Sokoto State

The Atiku’s camp in Rivers State is allegedly  ably led by Hon Farah Dagogo, Rt Hon Austin Opara former Deputy Speaker House of Reps , Sen lee maeba, Chief Abiye Sekibo, former Minister for Transportation, Sen George Sekibo, Sen Betty Apiafi, 7 Serving Reps members, 10 serving State Assembly members, 5 former Commissioners, and many other stakeholders have cheered up the Atiku,’s project in Rivers State.

Information reaching me is that committees have been formed for the preparation and receiving of Atiku in Rivers State by the Rivers PDP members.2023 Warpath In Rivers State pdp.

Recall that the PDP leadership crisis took a new turn after the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, ignored Wike, who came second and settled for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.

Atiku was said to have ignored the recommendations of a committee he set up to pick his running mate. The committee headed by Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State had recommended Wike as Atiku’s running mate, but the former Vice President opted for Okowa.

But a month ago, three APC governors, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, and Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State had visited Wike in Port Harcourt, the State capital.

Though the details of the meeting was unknown, reports have it that the parley was aimed at luring Wike to work with the APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Since the meeting with the governors, efforts by the PDP to mend fences between Wike and Atiku have failed to yield results.

Amid the continued face-off, Sanwo-Olu stormed Port Harcourt to commission a flyover completed by Wike’s administration.

However, a socio-political activist, Deji Adeyanju, said Wike might work against Atiku considering his new-found love with APC chieftains. He anchored his assertion on the fact that politicians were selfish and cared only about their interest.

Adeyanju said: “There is the possibility that Wike will work against Atiku and PDP because all politicians care about is their political interest and self-preservation, but in essence, nobody can tell Rivers people who they should vote for or not at this level.

“But for political expediency and other reasons, you need a governor who can galvanize people so that there would be massive voting, so that people will not be disenfranchised.

“The numbers can be significant if the governor has the capacity to help suppress votes or increase votes. These are some of the issues you need a governor and party for, so when it’s not working, there is the possibility that the people’s will can be suppressed.”
