There are indications that the current internal squabbles in the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, may not be over any time soon.
This follows the invitation from Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike to Peter Obi, the Labor Party presidential candidate, LP, to commission one of the projects being run by his government in the state.
The announcement was made by Dr. Yunusa Tanko, spokesperson for the Obi/Datti presidential campaign.
Keep in mind that Governor Wike is not new to inviting opposition members, especially the All Progressives Congress, APC, to commission projects in his state. An act that did not go down well with the PDP.
The governor had invited the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, an APC member, in August this year to commission a flyover project at the popular Waterlines interchange on Aba road, sparking rumors of his defection to the ruling APC and willingness to work for Bola Ahmed Tinubu of APC’s candidacy.
Wike, who currently leads a group of G5 governors including Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, recently indicated that his group is on track to reconcile with PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar after months of bickering.
According to the invitation of the DAILY POST, the event is scheduled for November 17, 2022 and the commissioning project is identified as the Nkpolu-Oroworukwu Flyover Bridge Project in Rivers State.
Tanko shared the invitation on his Twitter handle, writing: “We are getting closer and closer to reclaiming Nigeria for the Nigerian people………….. Join Rivers State People!!!. We keep moving Consciously & Yusfuly. Destination Aso villa.”
