Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Tuesday appeared to soften his tone amid the crisis within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking after meeting with members of the party’s Board of Trustees at the Government House in Port Harcourt, Wike said he was committed to achieving peace within the PDP.
Acting Chairman of the BoT, Adolphus Wabara hinted that they have not concluded but progress had been made at the talks.
Wike and his allies had on September 20 announced their withdrawal from the presidential campaign council of Atiku Abubakar.
For months, Wike and his allies have called for the resignation of PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, after Atiku defeated the Rivers State governor at the PDP primary in May and emerged the presidential candidate of the party.
Wike and his loyalists have argued that northerners cannot hold the two most important posts in the main opposition party.
