PDP crisis: Hope dims for reconciliation ba4e4ee664e040788d9e7bc6f1c986b7

The hope of an end to the protracted crisis that has hit the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) faded over the weekend.

The chasm between Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike’s camp and PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar appears to be widening.

According to The Nation, Wike’s supporters, the sources said, may have prevented reconciliation with Atiku’s camp.

Wike and three other DPP governors in his camp, Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Samuel Ortom (Benue), were reported to have left the country over the weekend to discuss how best to move forward as a group. . .

They returned to the country yesterday.

The asymmetric leadership structure of the main opposition party has been a point of contention between the two sides.

Wike’s camp has requested that Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP national chair, resign to rectify the disparity and be replaced by a candidate from the Southwest.

Despite the current North-South divide, the Atiku camp, which is mainly made up of conservative Northern PDP members, has vowed to keep Ayu as national president.

After the recent meeting in London between Atiku and Wike supporters, a party source who spoke to our correspondent by phone yesterday claimed that the two camps had refused to change their positions.

“There has been no change since that meeting in London a few days ago, so there is no new information on the situation.

Actually, we cannot see any encouraging indications of a compromise between the two parties. On the other hand, with reference to the departure of the National President, the two parties remain firm in their positions. So, such is the current scenario, the person added.

Some frightened party leaders fear that the PDP’s current circumstances may herald a repeat of the 2015 situation, in which unresolved internal conflicts resulted in high-profile defections to the then-opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to their accusations, four defecting PPD governors allegedly broke a gentlemen’s agreement to split the party’s presidential bid in the north.

Rotimi Amaechi (for the rivers), Rabiu Kwankwaso (for Kano), Abdulfatah Ahmed (for Kwara) and Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto).

Atiku, Aminu Tambuwal, former Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Bukola Saraki were other defections.

But according to the source, Wike and his supporters may be too late to leave the PDP at this point.

Governor Rivers and his supporters may remain in the PDP and campaign against Atiku’s victory from within, according to the source, who did not want his identity made public.

The source added that Wike’s camp believes the PDP has a very slim chance of winning the 2023 presidential election.

Governor Rivers and his allies, he continued, are more concerned about their political future beyond 2023, as they do not see Atiku and the PDP winning the election.

“Some circumstances have altered the political landscape this time, so much so that even Atiku and the PDP leaders are unsure of their chances in 2023.

The involvement of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Kwankwaso and Peter Obi in the race has lowered the PDP’s chances of winning compared to what they did in the 2019 election.
