Breaking: Atiku Meets Wike, Fayose After PDP Presidential Primary (Photo)

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the 2023 general election, Atiku Abubakar on Monday visited the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike in Abuja.

Recall that the former Vice President defeated Wike who was his closet rival at the presidential primary of the main opposition party on Saturday night.

Atiku gathered votes of 371 delegates while Wike, polled 237 votes after the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal pulled out of the race for Atiku during the electoral process.

It was gathered that Atiku on Monday met with Wike as part of the reconciliation move for the party, to give the PDP a better chance in the 2023 presidential election against the ruling All Progressives Congress.

The reconciliation meeting was also attended by former Ekiti State Governor and PDP presidential aspirant, Ayodele Fayose, amongst other PDP chieftains.

Wike has failed to react following his defeat at the presidential primary of the main opposition party.

The Rivers State Governor while speaking before the commencement of voting had said he would support any candidate that emerges.

He was, however,  absent from the stage when Atiku was giving his acceptance speech.
