Seven members of the People’s Democratic Party’s Board of Trustee are in closed door meeting with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike at the government house in Port Harcourt.
The meeting is said to be part of efforts to resolve the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party
Wike’s men and Governors of Enugu, Abia, Benue, Oyo States, as well as some top PDP stakeholders in the state are expected to be at the meeting.
Former Senate President and BoT Chairman, Adolphus Wagbara, Dr. Ibrahim Idris, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, Shuaibu Oyedokun, Kabiru Turaki (SAN), Dr. Esther Uduehi and Zainab Maina are the BoT members in attendance.
Governor Wike and some governors in the South had boycotted the campaign flag-off of the party’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
To this effect, it is expected that deliberations at the meeting will be aimed at finding a common ground to pacify Wike and his men as the 2023 elections inch closer.
Governor Wike and four of his counterparts, now known as the big five governors, have formed an alliance to seek equity and justice in the party.
Top of their demands is the resignation of the PDP national chairman, Senator Iyorcha Ayu, to pave the way for a southerner to succeed him since Atiku, a northerner, is the presidential standard bearer of the party.
