From Ogundele Olanrewaju
The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised to support the ambition of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state fully in 2027. Atiku made the promise to Wike when they met in Abuja to discuss ways the growing crisis between the party can be resolved.
The Nation reports that during their meeting on Thursday, September 30, Atiku offered Wike the new deal of ensuring that he throws his full support for the Rivers governor in the 2027 presidential election.
According to the source, Wike would have to agree to sheathe his sword and support him (Atiku) in his ambition to win the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria. The source said: “Wike was non-committal to Atiku because of past breaches of commitment.
It was also gathered that Wike said he would need some time to consult with his team before reverting to Atiku.
