A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dele Momodu, has suggested a solution to the crisis rocking the party.
DAILY REPORT NG reports that there has been a disagreement between the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State over the choice of vice-presidential candidacy and the party’s presidential primaries.
Speaking on the issue, Momodu suggested a close-door dialogue between Wike and Atiku would resolve the crisis.

According to the former presidential aspirant: “What I would advise Atiku Abubakar to do today is to sit down one-on-one without no other person present with Governor Wike and agree on deliverables, If possible, sign an agreement.
“The situation in PDP shows what Wike is in the equation of things in Nigeria. If you have a man who is your best governor across the board, across party lines, Wike stands out as a fantastic performer.
“Today, the fear of Wike is the beginning of wisdom in PDP, there is no question about that. Wike is smart, he knows the game he’s playing, and what he wants to do is to force a deal with the party. That’s my own reading of the situation.”
