Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday met some of his colleagues elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party and some other party faithful who were behind his presidential campaign.
The meeting held at the Rivers Governor’s Lodge, Abuja, was the first by the group after the party’s special national convention which produced Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the party’s presidential candidate.
A member of the party’s Board of Trustees, Prof. Jerry Gana, spoke with journalists, on behalf of the group, after the meeting.
Gana said, “We know that developments will unfold and when they do, we shall brief Nigerians. We have met together for the first time after the primaries of the PDP.
“We have frankly reviewed matters among ourselves; we want to confirm we are solidly together as a group.”
Those who attended the meeting included Governors Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.
Also in attendance were former Governors Donald Duke of Cross River State, Gabriel Suswam of Benue State, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State, Jonah Jang of Plateau State and Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe State.
