According to PM News, Wabara disclosed this on Sunday, adding that the party leaders will be meeting Governor Samuel Ortom and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Benue and Adamawa States respectively as part of it’s reconciliation move.
Some members of the party led by Governor Nyesom Wike had insisted that Iyorcha Ayu, the chairman of PDP must vacate office after the emergence of Atiku Abubakar who is from the South like him as the presidential candidate of the party.
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and some PDP members had asked the party national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu to resign.

But Ayu, backed by Atiku and other members of the party had insisted that he will run out his four year tenure.
Efforts has since being going to soothe the grieving members of the party but Wabara said much progress as not being made.
Wabara speaking on the development said, “We will be going to Adamawa State tomorrow (today) to meet with Governor Fintiri and from there we will meet with Governor Ortom. I am on the road now to meet with Prof Jerry Gana. We are trying our best to ensure that peace is achieved and victory will be ours in 2023.
“We will soothe aggrieved nerves and come with something that will be acceptable to everyone.”
“After we met with the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, I won’t say we are making progress, but we are talking to our governors and the parties concerned.
“We should give and take, and pacify, but because I have not reported to the BoT members, I can’t make a categorical statement. We have to talk to our members and whatever we come up with will be the position of the BoT”, he added.
