Atiku, Wike Agree To Raise C’ttee To Clear Up Grey Areas

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may in the next few weeks witness a peaceful atmosphere, as the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, and the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, met in Abuja to resolve the crisis rocking the party.

To this end, the duo have resolved to raise a small committee to iron out grey areas with a view to resolving their differences.

 Recall that Atiku and Wike have been having a running battle over the choice of the vice presidential candidate.


It was gathered that the peace meeting between Atiku and Wike took place at the residence of a former Minister of Information and chieftain of PDP, Prof. Jerry Gana.

A source said that the two resolved at the meeting to set up a small peace and reconciliation committee of equal number from both sides to look at all grey areas with a view to finding solutions to them.

The outcome of the ‘small committee,’ it was further learnt, will be subjected to the final approval and ratification of a larger committee of the party.

The source, who was privy to the meeting said, “The meeting was a very cordial one.

Both parties have resolved to let peace reign and put everything that had happened in the past behind them.”


Recall that the battle between Wike and Atiku emanated as a result of the choice of the vice presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, contrary to expectation in some quarters that Wike would be named as the vice presidential candidate of the PDP.

The development, however, did not go down well with Wike who never hid his feelings through his comments, actions and attitude so far.

Ayu Reveals How PDP Will Win South-West In 2023

Meanwhile, SenatorIyorchia Ayu, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), has revealed how the party will win South-West in 2023.

Ayu, who spoke in Abuja on Thursday, during an interactive meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) and former National Publicity Secretaries, State and Zonal Publicity Secretaries and other key stakeholders, added that PDP is the preferred party for 2023.

He said that the election in Ekiti and Osun states gave PDP an edge over other parties ahead of the 2023 election.

 Ayu, who stated the importance of the elections in Ekiti and Osun to PDP, added that “it was clear that the preferred party the Nigerian people want to take over power next year is still the PDP.

 This is not based on lies, it is based on realities. It’s based on the reality of these two states elections Ekiti and Osun.

“Never mind we had hiccups in Ekiti for reasons, which many Nigerian and party members know. We still keyed in on a very important state of Osun.

“This means we now control theheartlandof theSouth-West. We control both Osun and Oyo, and if you control the heartland of the South-West, you are likely to win in the rest of the South- West in Ondo, in Ogun and of course the big prize in Lagos. “So we need to work harder to tell Nigerians the truth. We need to convey to Nigerians the failure of the APC and to go ahead and tell them what we will do for them as realistically as possible.”

Ayu also said: “We do not want to claim victories that we have not earned. And I think that it is important that we maintain this relationship with the Nigerian people. They should trust us. The English man says actions speak louder than words.

 “And the Nigerian people as long as we continue to do the right things they will believe us and they will definitely give us their mandate.

“We have already demonstrated this in the last six to eight months since we took over as the NWC of the party.

“We try to convince Nigerian people of the disgusting realities that they find themselves in, thanks to the APC and all the lies they told against the PDP.”

Boasting that Osun election victory shows clearly that PDP is on its way to victory, Ayu said, “We are definitely going to win the next election, we’ll increase the number of governors, we’ll control the National Assembly, House of Representatives, most state Houses of Assembly and of course the big price. We shall return to the Villa.”

Also speaking, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, said that Osun election has demystified the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that the lying of the ruling party is coming into the open.

 “Most recently in Osun State, the message of confronting the liar with the facts are coming and becoming more and more grounded in the minds of Nigerians. And PDP is again now being looked upon as the only hope of the Nigerian people.

“So this is the trajectory, and we’ll continue on that trajectory as we proceed on this mission to ensure that the message we set out to our people and to the whole world is such that is consistent with who we are, the party of the people and reflected in our name as Peoples Democratic Party,” he said.
