PDP Returns To Negotiation Table With Gov Wike’s Group, Postpones Campaigns

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has postponed its Presidential Campaign scheduled to hold in Kebbi and Zamfara states indefinitely as talks with Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike and his group are set to resume.

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 State Governor on their rift and resolve issues, considering his importance to the party.

Wike has however, remained adamant in his demand for the resignation of the party chairman, Iyorchia Ayu before further negotiations can commence.

The Rivers State Governor 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 him, the national chairman had before the Presidential primary that threw up Atiku Abubakar as flag bearer, promised to step aside once the party’s standard bearer emerges from the north.

He said 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.
