0 46

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has called for a conference of Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party officials and stakeholders to discuss the state party’s future in the state.

This will be the first conference held in the state since the party’s presidential primary election and the turmoil that ensued as a result of the election results.

Even if the subject of the meeting could not be determined, a source told our reporter that party stakeholders in the state had not yet heard directly from the governor since the recent events that took place in the party at the national level.

Party officials, members of the state executive council, local government chairmen appointed by the party, and a few other hand-picked individuals are scheduled to attend the gathering.

The governor was going to update his troops on the position adopted by his team, which was to resign from the party’s presidential campaign council, according to the source, who stated that the key meeting was tied to the current crisis that occurred inside the party.

As a consequence of this, the various parties involved are anticipating hearing directly from the governor about his position and the subsequent course of action surrounding the PDP situation.

This comes shortly before Governor Wike is slated to conduct a news conference at the Government House in Port Harcourt on the morning of Friday, September 23, 2022. The press conference is set to begin at 8:00 a.m.

It is expected that the governor would remark further on the conflict that exists between him and the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, particularly in response to the comment made by the latter on Wednesday.

In his reaction to the motion brought up by Wike’s camp in Port Harcourt, Atiku stated that nobody could compel the National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, to resign from his post.

The governor, who was left feeling deceived as a result of the conclusion of the presidential primary and Atiku’s announcement when choosing his vice presidential running partner, had pledged to open out about some of the factors that led up to the crisis.

Wike is said to have said, “Nothing has occurred yet, but something will soon happen,” however this is not entirely accurate.

Even while invitees are already strolling into the government houses at the time that this report is being filed, it is believed that a statement will be published after the conclusion of today’s meeting, which will take place at 2:00 p.m.
