Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has reacted to the visit of some governors of the All Progressives Congress to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Saraki on Saturday described their visit to Wike’s residence in Port Harcourt as an effort that would not yield a result.
Recall that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State met with Wike in Port Harcourt on Friday.
Saraki while addressing newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara State capital after the Eid celebration said the visit of the APC Governors would yield no result.
He described Governor Wike as an important member of the Peoples Democratic Party, adding that the issue in the party would be resolved.
Saraki said, “Governor Wike is an important member of our party and I am very confident that in no distant time, we will sit down and address all the issues. There is no doubt about it that he has cause to feel the way he does, but there are better ways by which issues like this can be resolved.
“The good thing is that we all talking to one another. We are on top of the situation and PDP will reunite and forge ahead to win the next elections. I assure you that PDP will resolve the family issue that it currently has.
“The fact that some APC governors went to see their colleague, trying to capitalise on what they think is an issue is a gross miscalculation. At the end of the day, their visit is going nowhere.
“The APC governors know that it is this kind of a crack they need to latch on. Fortunately, we are not going to give him (Wike) to them because the election ahead is too important. The destinies of millions of Nigerians are too important and even bigger than any party or individual. I appreciate that all our stakeholders appreciate that and Governor Wike himself appreciates that.”
