Wike, after meeting PDP BoT, says peace is most important

By our reporter| Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state after a meeting on Tuesday with members of the party’s Board of Trustees at the Government House in Port Harcourt, said he was committed to achieving peace within the PDP.

“The most important thing is to have peace,” Wike said.

“The house is united. I am hopeful we will resolve the issues, because I am alive.

“Only those who are alive are hopeful. We have said repeatedly that we will not leave the party. We believe the internal issues will be resolved.”

Acting Chairman of the BoT, Adolphus Wabara, also hinted that progress had been made at the talks.

“We have not concluded,” Wabara said.

“Making peace is difficult. But we have heard from his side. The family remains one. We shall achieve peace very soon.”

For months, Wike and his allies have called for the resignation of PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, after Atiku defeated the Rivers State governor at the PDP primary in May and emerged the presidential candidate of the party.

According to them, northerners cannot hold the two most important posts in the main opposition party.

They announced their withdrawal from the presidential campaign council of Atiku Abubakar on September 20.

They were also absent from the inauguration of Atiku’s campaign council on September 28, 2022, as they argued that northerners should not occupy the two top positions of the party.
