PDP Crisis Deepens   As Wike’s Group Pulls Out Of Atiku’s Campaign


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The team of the Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has pulled out of the campaign Council of the party’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.

“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,” according to a report this Wednesday morning by The Nation.

This is even as tension is said to be mounting in the South South zone of PDP over alleged move to relocate the zonal secretariat from Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

A Daily Sun report this morning said: “The South South PDP, in a statement by the zonal Organising Secretary, Ekom Akonjom, based on a communique issued after a meeting of the party noted that a zonal consultative meeting, which ordinarily should hold in the Rivers State capital is scheduled to hold in one of the nearby states.”

The paper said it gathered that supporters of Governor Wike, consider the move to hold the proposed  zonal  consultative meeting outside Port Harcourt as an attempt to whittle down the influence of the governor in the affairs of the party in the zone.

The paper noted that “Wike and his supporters  have been on warpath with the national leadership as well as the presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the aftermath of the nomination of the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as vice presidential candidate.”
