PDP Crisis: IBB to wade in as Atiku, Wike, other G-5 governors eye reconciliation

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Babangida was set to wade into the crisis rocking the opposition PDP ahead of the 2023 general election.

Sources had said IBB would hold a closed-door meeting with Atiku and aggrieved five governors of the party, otherwise known as G-5, in Minna, the Niger state capital, on Friday, November 11.

The sources hinted that the recent move at reconciliation leveraging on the outreach of IBB might have been powered by a former senior military intelligence officer and some interest groups from the North supporting the Atiku presidency.
