Former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who was a staunch critic of Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, may reunite with him today.
During the presidential campaign, Wike led a group of five PDP governors to campaign against Atiku’s bid for the presidency.
National Leadership Summons Key Members for Meeting
The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has summoned a crucial stakeholders meeting scheduled for today, June 20, 2023.
Over 180 key members, including former national chairmen, governors, and Senate Presidents, have been invited to the meeting, which will be held in Abuja.
Speculations on the Meeting’s Agenda
The meeting, organized by a select committee of the National Working Committee (NWC), aims to deliberate on crucial issues facing the party.
The agenda has not been disclosed yet, but speculations suggest it may revolve around the party’s future considering its poor performance over the past eight years.
Prominent Figures Invited and Party Divisions
Several influential party members have been invited, including Atiku Abubakar, Sen Ifeanyi Okowa, Nyesom Wike, Sen Adolphus Wabara, David Mark, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, and other notable figures.
The party has been divided between factions loyal to Atiku and Wike, a division that became evident during the recent National Assembly leadership election.
Concerns and Urgency for the Party’s Future
Party insiders have expressed the need for a sincere conversation about the party’s challenges and its survival.
With the PDP serving as the primary opposition platform, leaders acknowledge the urgency to address the party’s issues promptly in order to maintain their relevance in the minds of Nigerians.
The source stressed the significance of the task ahead, acknowledging that the party’s revival will require substantial effort.
Today’s stakeholders meeting serves as an opportunity for the PDP’s key members to come together and address the party’s challenges.
With the potential reunion of Nyesom Wike and Atiku Abubakar, the meeting holds importance for the future direction of the party.
As the party battles the outcome of the 2023 general election in court, leaders recognize the need for introspection and decisive actions to rejuvenate the PDP and solidify its role as a major political force in Nigeria.
