What’s Next Since Wike And Atiku Met?, #Wike #Atiku #Met Welcome to WhichLEDLight BlogThis is the latest news and trending broadcast we have for you today::
After the meeting between Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, and Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, it is reasonable to state that the main opposition party, PDP, has taken a big step towards peace and reconciliation.
After speculation, rumours, small talk, and the disclosure of secrets, the two men met on Thursday at the Carlton Hotel in London, a meeting that was eagerly awaited by party members.
Thursday’s meeting was their third physical meeting since the party’s primary in June. Early in the month, they met in private at the Abuja residence of PDP leader Jerry Gana. They initially met in Abuja a few days after the election.
Since Mr. Wike lost the party’s presidential nomination to Atiku in the primaries, the two men have been at loggerheads.
Mr. Wike claimed that Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal, who resigned just before the delegates were to be called to vote in the primary, not only betrayed him, but also violated the regulations of the convention.
Many claim that if Mr. Tambuwal had not withdrawn from the campaign, Mr. Wike would have posed a greater challenge to Mr. Atiku.
His resentment grew after Atiku snubbed him to nominate the governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, for the vice president.
Although he first declared that he was only interested in the presidency, Mr. Wike and his camp believed that Atiku would appoint him as his running mate, particularly after a panel formed and nominated him for the position.
After Mr. Okowa was presented, his next step would be to fly to Istanbul. Some party leaders, including the governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, emphasized the need for the party (and Atiku) not only to apologize to Mr. Wike but also to make amends for him.
Premium Times revealed that Mr. Wike rejected attempts by Atiku’s emissary to meet him in Turkey, despite Mr. Wike’s claim that Atiku never tried to meet him.
The animosity between them persisted until August 4, when they met at Jerry Gana’s. However, the disagreement continued after that meeting.
While the two men had promised to set up committees to meet and broker reconciliation, Mr. Wike’s public actions showed that he still harbored resentment.
With the second meeting[a fil-lukanda ta’[ames stilel f’Londra, i]yes, there may be a time of hope for peace in the reconciliation between the two.
