The PDP leader added that the party was making serious efforts to put its house in order and resolve its internal crisis.
Commenting on recent meetings of Wike with members of the opposition, Ologbondiyan said the governor is freed to associate with politicians in other camps.
“I know it and I believe that Governor Nyesom Wike is savvier politically to go and put the life of his own political machinery into an arrangement that will stop its candidates from winning elections. I know he will not do a thing like that and I am very confident about that,” he said.
