The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has summoned a meeting of leaders and stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
This would be the first meeting in the state since the party’s presidential primary and the crisis that followed its outcome.
Though the agenda of the meeting could not be ascertained, a source told our correspondent that since the recent happenings in the party at the national level, party stakeholders in the state had yet to hear directly from the governor.
Therefore, the stakeholders are expected to hear from the governor directly about his position and the next line of action regarding the PDP crisis.
The source said the crucial meeting was connected to the recent crisis in the party, as the governor would brief his men on the position taken by his team to pull out of the party’s presidential campaign council.
The governor, who felt betrayed following the outcome of the presidential primary and Atiku’s pronouncement while picking his vice presidential running mate had vowed to open up on some issues leading to the crisis.
Wike was quoted as saying, “Nothing has happened yet, but something will soon happen.”
