PDP Crisis: Atiku, Wike Reconciliation Committee Meets In Port Harcourt


Members of committee constituted by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to reconcile the two PDP leaders met on Friday at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Representatives of the PDP presidential candidate comprised the Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri; Adamu Waziri and Eyitayo Jegede.  Those on Governor Wike’s team were former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoki; former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke; former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko and former Governor of Gombe State,  Ibrahim Dankwambo.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, which lasted for about four hours, Governor Fintiri, stated that talks were ongoing to achieve desired objectives. He said he knew that Nigerians were waiting patiently for the PDP to clinch power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in 2023, and redeem the country from the bad governance brought about by the current administration. He urged Nigerians to be patient and expressed optimism that at the end of the day the committee will broker peace, unify the party and Nigerians.

“We are aware that Nigerians are anxious and waiting for PDP to take over government in 2023. We have met as leaders, members of the same political family and we have opened discussion. Work is in progress and we will continue. At the end of the day, we will broker peace and we will unify the party and Nigerians.” Also speaking, the former Governor of Ondo State,  Mimiko, said the agreement by members of the committee to bring about unity in the party would be achieved soon  Mimiko said the committee would meet again to further deliberate on issues that need to be addressed.

“We have agreed that there is need for us to enhance unity within our party. This is a reconciliation process. There are some issues out there which need further deliberation when the committees meets again.”

Alhaji Atiku and Governor Wike had agreed to constitute the committee at a meeting they held in Abuja few weeks ago at the residence of former Minister of Information and National Orientation, Prof. Jerry Gana as part of the framework for the resolution of their differences.
