The chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Adolphus Wabara, has arrived at the Government House, Port Harcourt, apparently to woo the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to sheath his sword and embrace peace in the interest of the party.
Recall that the opposition PDP has been engrossed in crisis following the presidential primary election that produced former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as flagbearer.
Wabara was accompanied by six other members of the party’s BoT to appease Governor Wike. Even though Wike has insisted that there would be no deal until the incumbent chairman, Iyiorcha Ayu, resigns.
The BoT’s meeting today is coming a few days after five of the PDP Governors, including Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Gabriel Ortom of Benue, Ayo Makinde of Oyo, Okezie Ikpazu of Abia, and Ifeanyi Ugwanyi of Enugu states met in Enugu to discuss on the issues affecting the party.
Wike has insisted that to create a balance in the party’s leadership structure, a southerner must take over as national chairman of the party.
The peace talk is being intensified by the Board of Trustees even as presidential campaigns kicked off last week, September 28, according to the guideline of the independent national electoral commission, INEC.
The BoT members who arrived at the Government House Port Harcourt at about 12:30 pm are expected to persuade Governor Wike and his loyalists to rescind their decision of shunning the party’s presidential campaign council.
Wike and some governors last month announced that they were not part of the campaign council led by the Akwa Ibom state Governor, Udom Emmanuel, with the Sokoto state Governor, Waziri Tambuwal, appointed as the Director General of the Atiku Abubakar/Ifeanyi Okowa campaign committee.
