SERIOUS CRACK IN PDP AS WIKE MEETS SANWOOLU, AKEREDOLU AND FAYEMI

There are strong indications that the crisis rocking the opposition Peoples Democratic Party is likely to festering.

In the light of this, three Governors on the Platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governor Babajide Sanwoolu of Lagos state, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti and Governor Rotimi Akeredolu met with the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt on Friday.

The meeting is coming amidst a deep crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

It was gathered that  the three governors are emissaries sent by APC 2023 Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to seek his(Wike) support.

 

The ruling party and Tinubu are believed to be trying to capitalise on the crisis in the opposition party to seek the support of Governor  Wike for the forthcoming presidential poll.

It can be recalled that the 2023 Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar refused to select Wike as his running mate even after a panel set up to select a Vice Presidential candidate for the party chose the Rivers Governor.

The development  has caused a sharp divide in the opposition party.

Speaking on the meeting, Fayemi said; “We are going to Port Harcourt to meet members of the APC in the state but have decided to use the opportunity to pay a courtesy call on our colleague, the governor of the state,”.

The Rivers State governor has tacitly remained opposed to his party’s candidate, Atiku, since the former Vice President announced  Okowa as his running mate.

It  would  be recalled that just last week, the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, decried the treatment the PDP and Atiku had allegedly meted on Governor  Wike and advised the candidate to placate the governor.
