Former Vice President of Nigeria and the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the last general election, Atiku Abubakar, this afternoon said he has reconciled party affairs with Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike.
It would be recalled that Mr. Wike supported Aminu Tambuwal against Mr Atiku in the 2019 PDP presidential primaries. But Atiku clinched the party’s ticket.
Speaking with reporters in Port Harcourt on Thursday, the Adamawa born politician said he met with Mr Wike to reconcile party affairs and position the opposition party to wrest power from the ruling All Progressives Congress in 2023.
“Well, I came here to reconcile with the governor on party affairs and how we can ensure that there is unity and stability in the party, so that we can take over government in 2023. I believe that Nigerians can’t wait for 2023 to come, so that PDP will return.”
“I think he (Wike) is the topmost governor we have in the party. There is no doubt about that in terms of projects, youths and employment, in terms of security. Yes, we have security challenges all over the country,” he stated.
