“Today, the fear of Wike is the beginning of wisdom in PDP, there is no question about that. Wike is smart, he knows the game he’s playing, and what he wants to do is to force a deal with the party. That’s my own reading of the situation.
“He is a very smart politician. I’m sure eventually the party will reach an agreement with him."

Momodu recommended that Atiku Abubakar should have a one-on-one meeting with Wike to resolve the crisis rocking the party.
