‘Atiku Optimistic Of Settling Rift With Wike, Ortom, Makinde, Others’

2023: No Reconciliation In Sight Between Me, Wike, Aggrieved PDP Governors - Atiku

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation has said its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will soon settle his rift with the five aggrieved governors of the party.

Naija News reports that the five aggrieved Governors are Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu).

Speaking to journalists, the Director of Strategic Communications of the Atiku/Okowa campaign, Chief Dele Momodu described the prospects of reconciliation as very bright.

He said the five Governors have indicated a willingness to reconcile with Atiku and the leadership of the PDP with a view to working together in harmony.

Momodu said: “I am sure most of you must have heard that our Governors, the Integrity Group, said yesterday that the window of reconciliation has not been shot permanently.

“We have been at it for some time trying to see how we can bring everybody under the same umbrella. So hopefully, in the next couple of days and weeks, all of us will be able to work as one family. PDP is the biggest political family in Africa and we want it to remain so”.

PDP Set To Petition Abdulsalami’s Peace Panel Over Atiku’s Convoy Attack

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has promised to petition the National Peace Committee over the attack on the convoy of its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in Maiduguri, Borno State.

The Director of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation on Strategic Communications, Dele Momodu, stated this while addressing a press conference in Abuja on Thursday.

Naija News recalls that Atiku’s campaign convoy was attacked on Wednesday in Maiduguri by suspected thugs, in which several persons were injured and dozens of vehicles vandalized.

The PDP had accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being responsible for the incident, which was denied by the ruling party. The Borno State Police Command also denied any report of an attack.

Speaking at the press conference, Momodu said the party would formally report the attack on Atiku’s convoy to the Peace Committee led by former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar.

The PDP chieftain said the party’s plan to report to the peace committee was because a peace accord was signed by most of the presidential candidates to eschew violence before, during after the 2023 elections.

He added that the PDP was also preparing the evidence that would be presented to the committee and the Nigeria Police Force, saying that the attacks are threats to the lives of party members.
