Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike’s team has pulled out of the campaign council of the party’s standard bearer, Atiku Abubakar.
According to The Punch, the development was reached after a meeting in the early hours of Wednesday in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
Newshound gathered that members of the Rivers State Governor’s team vowed not to play any role in Atiku’s campaign ahead of the 2023 general elections.
They insisted that the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, must resign for them to rescind their decision.
Wike had called for Ayu’s resignation following the outcome of the party’s presidential primary won by Atiku.
A source in government who does not want his name mentioned confirmed this to our reporter on Wednesday.
