In an effort to reconcile Governor Wike with Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential flagbearer Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and other PDP stalwarts, the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has held a closed-door meeting with his Rivers State counterpart, Wike ahead of the 2023 elections.
The National Vice Chairman of the PDP, South-South Dan Orbih was also part of the meeting.
Recall that, a picture of Wike meeting Labour party presidential candidate Peter Obi had surfaced online, amid speculation Wike was going to support him.
Gov. Wike has also recently met with Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State in Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike is aggrieved after losing the PDP presidential ticket and subsequently being neglected as Alhaji Atiku’s running mate.
However, Wike has refrained from making a public statement since losing the vice presidential slot to Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state.
TheNewsGuru.com reports that Wike’s group rejects a reconciliation meeting with Atiku’s camp citing contradiction and disrespect as basis for the rejection.
