The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has broken its silence after Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike met with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu abroad.
It was earlier reported that Wike and Tinubu met in London on Monday night to discuss issues relating to the 2023 presidential election.
A source who spoke with Vanguard on the condition of anonymity revealed that the meeting was centred around how the Wike camp would stay in PDP to cause crisis in the party.
Also speaking with Daily Trust, a source belonging to the Tinubu camp said the discussions were very fruitful, adding that Wike may reach agreements to support Tinubu and the APC in the 2023 elections.
The APC chieftain said it was also discussed during the meeting how they would mobilize their supporters to work for APC in 2023.
The source revealed that Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Ekiti State counterpart, Kayode Fayemi, were part of the parley from the Tinubu camp while Governors Samuel Ortom (Benue) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo) attended the meeting from the Wike camp.
Reacting to the development, PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba said the party was not aware of the meeting between Wike and Tinubu.
Speaking further, Ologunagba said the process of resolving the feud between Wike and the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is ongoing, adding that the party is making good progress.
He said, “The reconciliation process is ongoing and we are making good progress. It is a marathon and not a sprint and we are confident that at the end of the day, everything would be fine.”
