July 08, (THEWILL) – As the crisis over the choice of Presidential candidate in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) continues, three governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Friday, met with Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, in Port Harcourt.
THEWILL reports that Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State and Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, held a closed door meeting with the Rivers state governor at his residence in the State capital.
Although, details of the meeting is not yet known, but it may not be unconnected with the 2023 presidential election.
Wike, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is expected to back his party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, but speculations have emerged that the Rivers State Governor is unhappy after being passed over for the vice presidential ticket.
APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was said to have met with Wike in France last week, but the Tinubu media office later denied such a meeting ever took place.
