Walid Jibrin, the PDP’s board of trustees chairman, has stated that they will take any necessary measures to prevent Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, from leaving the party.
This was said by Jibrin on Monday when he spoke to journalists in Kaduna.
In the PDP presidential primary, Wike came in second place against former vice president Atiku Abubakar.
Wike accused party members from the south of “betrayal” after his defeat.
His annoyance increased when Atiku chose Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State, as his running partner instead of him.
Considering these events, there have been rumors that Wike may leave the opposition party after receiving visits from the presidential candidates of the Labour Party (LP) and New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso, respectively.
Jibrin, though, asserted, “We in the PDP know how to address our issues. Governor Nyesom Wike might not be pleased, as we all know.
“This party plans to form a reconciliation committee that will meet with Wike to speak with him, make a plea to him, and pray that he won’t quit our party.”
As a “wonderful man who has been battling for the party, and the party will not want to see him migrate to another party,” Jibrin characterized Wike.
The BoT chairman said, “We will all go to Wike together and if that means kneeling to Wike, we will kneel for him.”
