- The PDP has waded into the feud between two of its prominent governors
- Governors Nyesom Wike and Seriake Dickson have been at loggerheads
- The PDP said it has activated the party's internal reconciliation mechanism to settle the matter amicably
The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has waded into the disagreement between Governors Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state and Nyesom Wike of Rivers state.
Both governors had exchanged words recently over resources and other political issues.
Having noted the issues, the PDP said it has activated the party's internal reconciliation mechanism to settle the matter amicably.
“The PDP recognizes that the tone of disagreements between the two respected governors were skin-deep and only borne out of their love and zeal for their respective states.
“The PDP leadership hereby urges both Governors Wike and Dickson, as eminent leaders and frontline stakeholders in our party, to sheathe their swords while the leadership harmoniously resolves the issue, a statement by Kola Ologbodiyan,” PDP spokesman noted.
The party assured its members, leaders, stakeholders and supporters, particularly in Rivers and Bayelsa states, to remain calm and united, promising that the issue is already being resolved.
“The PDP restates that it remains one big indivisible family and will not allow anything to undermine its unity and focus especially at this trying time in the history of our nation,” the PDP said.
Meanwhile, the governor-elect of Bayelsa state, Chief David Lyon, has promised that he will probe the outgoing Bayelsa state government led by Governor Dickson.
Lyon stated this while inaugurating a 59-member transition council set up by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to scrutinise the accounts of the Dickson administration.
He noted that the action was needed for appropriate action when he takes over on February 14, 2020.
