2023: Atiku Extends Hands Of Fellowship To Wike

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has taken steps to make up with his closest rival for the ticket, Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers State, by visiting him at his Abuja home on Monday morning.

The former Vice President and 2019 flag bearer of the main opposition party reached out to the Rivers State governor following the last minute intrigues that enabled him to clinch the party’s presidential ticket on Saturday at the PDP National Convention in Abuja.

Wike came second behind Atiku after the Governor of Sokoto, Aminu Tambuwal, withdrew from the race and directed his supporters to vote for the former Vice President.

Since the Saturday loss, Wike has not publicly acknowledged Atiku’s victory in the poll.

He was said to have felt betrayed by the late master stroke move made by Tambuwal that helped Atiku to achieve victory.

Ostensibly keen to secure the support of the Rivers governor, Atiku visited him along with some other party chieftains in his Asokoro, Abuja residence perhaps he could assuage him.

What both political heavyweights have agreed is yet to be disclosed to the public.

What's your reaction?
