Ovation Magazine’s boss, Dele Momodu, has said Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State will not abandon the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Momodu said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily Monday.
This is amid crisis rocking the party due to Wike who has been aggrieved since the party’s presidential primary election which he lost to former vice president Atiku Abubakar.
“For me, governor Wike is a very principled man; if there’s one thing he has been consistent about, it is his love for PDP; I believe he will not leave PDP. He is playing a mind game and he’s good at it. What shall it profit him if he joins APC?” he asked.
Momodu urged Atiku to have a one-on-one discussion with Wie so as to reconcile with the Rivers Governor.
Momodu added, “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.

“Governor Wike believes that the party should have respected the zoning principle, number two, he believes that zoning would have favoured a southern candidate. Three, he believed that of all the southern aspirants, he is the one that has the capacity to deliver victory to the party.
“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.”
