Dele Momodu, a former presidential aspirant of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has proffered a solution to the conflict between the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
According to Momodu, a closed-door dialogue between both PDP leaders would fix the conflict between the two heavyweights.
Recall that Atiku and Wike have been embroiled in a conflict after the PDP presidential primary and the appointment of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as Atiku’s running mate.
Reports claim Wike was not pleased that Okowa was chosen over him as the party’s vice-presidential candidate.
In his reaction, Momodu who is a veteran journalist suggested that Wike and Atiku should agree on deliverables and sign a peace accord.
Momodu said, “What I would advise Atiku Abubakar to do today is to sit down one-on-one without no other person present with Governor Wike and agree on deliverables, If possible, sign an agreement.
“The situation in PDP shows what Wike is in the equation of things in Nigeria. If you have a man who is your best governor across the board, across party lines, Wike stands out as a fantastic performer.
“Today, the fear of Wike is the beginning of wisdom in PDP, there is no question about that. Wike is smart, he knows the game he’s playing, and what he wants to do is to force a deal with the party. That’s my own reading of the situation.”
