The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has postponed its Presidential Campaign scheduled to hold in Kebbi and Zamfara indefinitely as talks with Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike are set to resume.
It’s no longer news that the Presidential Candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar and Wike have been at loggerheads since the emergence of the former as the Presidential Candidate of the party.
Wike has remained adamant in his demand for the resignation of the party chairman, Iyorchia Ayu before further negotiations can commence.
Wike has continuously mounted pressure on Ayu to resign, for balance, equity and fairness claiming that the party leadership is heavily dominated by the north. According to the Rivers State governor, the national chairman promised to step aside once the party’s standard bearer emerges from the north.
He pointed out that for him to be part of the party’s affairs the national chairman has to resign which is the bone of contention. The Board of Trustees of the party led by former Senate President, Senator Adolphus Wabara, has been making placation moves between the disputing parties to find a common ground.
Furthermore, it was learnt that Atiku has recruited some party chieftains such as former President of the Senate, David Mark, and former Delta State governor, James Ibori, to talk to the Rivers Stt Governor on their rift and resolve issues considering his importance to the party.
