Wike Vs Atiku Nigeria's Opposition PDP Moves to Reconcile Warring Factions (News Central TV)

Loyalists of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike have pulled out of the campaign council of Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Rising from their stormy meeting in Port Harcourt early morning on Wednesday, members of the team vowed not to partake in Atiku’s campaign activities pending the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

The group insist a Southerner must be made Chairman of the party as pressure on Ayu to relinquish his position heightens.

Governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde -a strong associate of Wike, had reiterated the call for Ayu’s resignation last week when Atiku visited Oyo to meet with party loyalists.
