The former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has applauded the meeting between the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Leakblast.com had reported that the former Vice President met with Governor Wike at the home of a former Minister of Information and a member of the PDP Board of Trustees, Jerry Gana.
It was learned that the meeting was “positive,” and there would be more “fence-mending” in the coming days, which is aimed at resolving the crisis in the party.
In a chat with The Punch on Thursday, Lamido commended Gana for setting up the reconciliatory meeting between Wike and Atiku.
Lamido recalled how the former minister left the PDP because of Wike but later returned to the party after serious begging by himself, former Senate President, David Mark and PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
He said, “I will be the happiest person because the person in whose house it was held, Jerry Gana, is the surviving founding father of the PDP, all others are dead.
“So, it now means he is becoming consciously disturbed because the party to which he gave his sacrifices, which his colleagues died for, he is now bringing sanity into it.
“Those are my feelings and that is fine because there was one time when Jerry Gana left the PDP because of Wike. It was me, David Mark and Iyorchia Ayu who went and begged him. You see, there is no one in Nigeria that is greater than this party and you cannot leave because of somebody, you can’t do that.
