2023 Presidency: Why I reconciled with Wike – Atiku opens up, reveals next move

Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar has admitted reconciling with the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.

POLITICS NIGERIA earlier reported that Atiku and a small entourage went to visit Wike on Tuesday in Port-Harcourt in order to settle their differences. It can be recalled that both men were at loggerheads over control of the Party’s structure.

Speaking with journalists in Port Harcourt on Thursday, Mr Atiku said he met with Mr Wike to reconcile party affairs and position the opposition party to take power from APC in 2023.

In his words; “Well, I came here to reconcile with the governor on party affairs and how we can ensure that there is unity and stability in the party,”

“So, that we can take over government in 2023. I believe that Nigerians can’t wait for 2023 to come, so that PDP will return.”

“I think he (Wike) is the topmost governor we have in the party. There is no doubt about that in terms of projects, youths and employment, in terms of security. Yes, we have security challenges all over the country,”.

He also lamented over the poor state of security in the country.

“I have never seen it (insecurity) this bad. I am 70 years plus, I have never seen it this bad in terms of security challenges, in terms of economy, in terms of unemployment. This is the worst.”

Atiku is gearing up to possibly throw his hat in the ring again in 2023 for the nation’s top seat.
