After the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held its presidential primary and its winner, Atiku Abubakar announced his running mate, there has been a crisis within the party.
For the first time after then, Atiku met with the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday, August 4, to find a lasting solution to the crisis.
However, Vanguard reported that a top PDP leader said Wike may work against Atiku if the issues were not properly handled.
He added that Wike will not leave the PDP but would act the role of a spoiler. He stressed that those Atiku did not favour in the choice of choosing his campaign council are those Wike will use against him.

He added that the Rivers state governor will be an opposition member within the opposition party.
“He is secretly supporting Peter Obi. It will be the same thing Rauf Aregbesola did to them in Osun State.
“Although Aregbesola did not decamp, he instructed his supporters to back Ademola Adeleke. It is the same card Wike may play during the campaigns,” the source said.
