Governor Nyesom Wike

A group of  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftains loyal to Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has listed their demands for the party to meet, even as it vows to remain in the PDP.


This was part of the outcome of the meeting the group held on Sunday.


Those who attended the meeting included Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State and Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.


Others were former governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, former governor of Benue State, Senator Gabriel Suswam, former Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, former Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson, former governor Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State and former Plateau state governor, Jonah Jang.


Others include former PDP Deputy National Vice-Chairman, North, Senator Suleiman Nazif, former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, member of the House of Representatives from Kogi State, Tajudeen Yusuf, among others.


GRASSROOT REPORTERS gathered that ahead of the PDP’s Board of Trustees meeting scheduled to hold this week, the group has compiled a  list of demands for peaceful resolution of the crisis plaguing the party, which they will present to Atiku Abubakar in the presence of PDP leaders.


The demands include getting Abubakar to agree to do one term, if elected; asking National Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, to resign as chairman to enable a Southerner take over in line with the North-South power sharing formula since the presidential candidate is from the North; and headship of the Senate and House of Representatives, among others.


They also agreed to give “irreducible minimum” conditions whenever the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and the party leadership approach them for a truce.
