The former lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district, Dino Melaye, has revealed that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, would not allow the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, pull down the party.
The spokesperson for the Atiku presidential campaign said this during an intereview on Channels TV Politics Today on Friday night, noting that the rift between the former vice president and Wike is minor.
Melaye accused certain persons of escalating the disagreement between the PDP chieftains.
Dino said, “Democracy is noisy and at times disagreement; but that disagreement doesn’t mean that now we are going to pull down the roof. Governor Wike will not pull down the roof of PDP; he will not do that.
“Atiku Abubakar will not allow anybody; not even Wike to pull down the roof of the PDP. I am telling you that PDP is one big reliable family. These distractions are minor things.
“Governor Wike has his misgivings and he is entitled to it. He is complaining about one or two things and he is entitled to it. I am not going to get into details of what he’s complaining about, but he is aggrieved with one or two issues.
“And as I said, there has been communication between Governor Wike and Atiku Abubakar. And it has not stopped at that; they are still talking. People are over-escalating the situation It’s normal.”
