The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday met with some governors of his party (PDP)and a few other members.
The meeting held behind closed doors at the Rivers State Governor’s Lodge, Abuja.
Although the details of the meeting, which lasted hours, is still sketchy, it might be connected to the internal crisis rocking the party.
The governor, who recently returned from a foreign trip, had accused the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, of lying against him.
He had also described some of their party’s chieftains as ‘attack dogs’ of Atiku.
His comment was a reaction to his defeat at the party’s presidential primary and the failure of Atiku – who won the election – to pick him as the running mate.
Mr Wike had also refused to congratulate the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, after he emerged the vice-presidential candidate.
The governor also reportedly ignored efforts made by Atiku and his team to see him – a move Mr Wike described as untrue last week.
He, however, said Atiku did not send anyone to speak to him.
He further said the idea of setting up a committee was only being seen in the media and insisted that he would remain in the PDP and help rebuild the party.
Some former governors present were Donald Duke of Cross River State, Gabriel Suswam of Benue State, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State, and Jonah Jang of Plateau State.
