Details have emerged claiming some governors in the camp of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are angry with the slow pace of reconciliation talks with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and his loyalists.
Naija News, however, gathered that the reconciliation teams of Atiku and Wike are considering a new date for their meeting, which may be scheduled for Friday.
Recall that a meeting between the two groups initially scheduled for Monday in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State did not hold due to engagements by the Atiku group in Adamawa State.
A party source, who craved anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the public on the matter, said some of the Governors in the Atiku camp are beginning to fret over the apparent deadlock in the talks.
“This could have explained why the governors did not join Atiku in Yola on Monday, where a reception was held in his honour.
“Apart from the Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, who was the host governor, only the Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, who is Atiku’s running mate, attended the event.
“Other PDP governors in his camp who ordinarily ought to be there stayed away from the event,” the source told The Nation.
Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, Senator Ben Obi, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), and Senator Liyel Imoke are part of the Atiku’s reconciliation team.
Former Ondo Governor Olusegun Mimiko leads the Wike team, while other members include Cheif David Mark, ex-Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo, ex-Governor Donald Duke, and Mohammed Adoke (SAN) Soji Adeniji, among others.
