Details of the meeting between Nyesom Wike, the Governor of Rivers state and the 17 governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Port Harcourt on Tuesday night have emerged.
The meeting held behind closed doors in Wike’s country home in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area spanned into late night.
Aside from looking for a solution to the crisis plaguing the PDP, the governorship hopefuls said they are also worried about their chances to win the forthcoming election in their respective states.
The PDP governorship candidate in Kaduna State, Isa Muhammed, who spoke on behalf of other candidates, said they decided to visit Wike, having previously heard from the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“The talks were fruitful, open discussions with sincerity and we are home and dry. We discuss issues that border on the situation within the party and internal matter is not something you should look for details.
“We have discussed with the presidential candidate and we are here with our brother and friend and issues that border on what is happening have been sorted out.
“The issues have been resolved as far as I am concerned because we have heard from both sides. And we are going to meet with the National Working Committee to take a decision,” Muhammed said.
