“The reconciliation meeting between Atiku and Wike remains a stalemate. From our findings, the Atiku camp will ignore Wike and go ahead to announce the Presidential Campaign Committee.
”Once that is done, the Wike camp too will declare where they are heading because the Atiku camp is insisting that the Wike camp cannot hold them to ransom."

Another source also said that the biggest challenge with the committee is that Wike's camp has said that the national chairman of the PDP must resign his position.

He added:

"The situation now is that Wike’s camp is insisting that Ayu must go but the PDP chairman has resisted that move.”
