The camp of Governor Wike has the support of some PDP Governors who have placed demands before Atiku to gain their support in the 2023 general elections.
Sources close to Atiku that spoke with The Nation revealed that the former presidential candidate is planning to meet with members of Wike’s camp one on one
The source expressed confidence that two governors in the camp of the Rivers State Governor are giving positive signs to Atiku.
The source said, “Since the reconciliation talks with Wike have been unstable, Atiku has initiated personal talks with those in Wike’s camp.
Even within Wike’s group, there are also individual interests. Atiku has said he is ready to work with everybody for the success of the party.
So far, so good, there have been positive responses from these leaders including two serving governors, some ex-governors and leaders at various levels.
“You can call it talks within talks. But the personal reconciliation moves will not affect the ongoing negotiation with Wike’s camp.”
