The camp of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has dismissed the report that he is planning to divide the Rivers State chapter of the party.
Naija news had earlier reported that the camp of the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike alleged that Atiku has ignored the Governor and had started meeting with some Rivers PDP chieftains.
It was gathered that the former vice president aims to isolate Governor Wike ahead of the 2023 general elections.
A top official in the office of Atiku who spoke with Daily Sun said the PDP presidential candidate did not meet with Wike’s men in Abuja.
He further stated that the former vice president remains committed to reconciliation within the party.
The source blamed the fifth columnist for the claim that Atiku is trying to divide Rivers PDP.
He said, “We don’t know where all of that is coming from. We need to be very careful. There is the fifth columnist who wants to profit from all of this. We are in process of mediation. So, we have to be very careful. There are enemies also who do not want this thing to succeed. But I know that the peace process is ongoing.”
