Adamu Maina Waziri, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees, has faulted the party’s decision to beg Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state for picking Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as vice-presidential candidate, over him.
The opposition PDP has been plunged into a cold war since former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, named Okowa his running mate. In a bid to resolve the crisis, the chairman of the PDP BoT, Walid Jibrin, on Sunday, July 3, said the party would send a delegation which will include Atiku, Okowa, the National Working Committee and BoT members to reconcile with Wike.
Reacting, Waziri, a former minister of police affairs, faulted the idea, describing it as ill-informed, Daily Trust reported. He said: “Wike is desperate and he needs time to be comforted over what happened. I agree with the reconciliation but where we part ways is the issue of sending that mighty delegation to kneel for him.
“Whatever decisions the party made, all obedient members should abide, we must keep aside whatever happened during primary elections and move on, the party is bigger than the interest of all of us.
