Amid deepening crisis, Atiku makes irresistible promise to Wike
The 2023 presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, had promised to support the ambition of Wike fully in 2027.
Atiku made the promise to Wike when they met in Abuja to discuss ways the growing crisis between the party can be resolved.
During their meeting on Thursday, September 30, Atiku offered Wike the new deal of ensuring that he throws his full support for the Rivers governor in the 2027 presidential election.
Sources privy to what transpired between both PDP big wigs said Atiku, however, put a condition to supporting Wike in 2027.
According to one of the sources, Wike would have to agree to sheathe his sword and support him (Atiku) in his ambition to win the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.
