    A list of Nigerian politicians has paid the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike a visit days after he lost out in the race to secure the Vice Presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party.

    Recall that Wike lost the chance to be Atiku Abubakar’s running mate to the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa.

    Over the past few days since Atiku decided to pick Okowa as his running mate, there have been speculations that the Rivers governor is plotting an exit from the PDP.

    There may be truth to the reports following the Rivers governor’s silence on the affairs of the party that has seen two of his allies, a former minister of Niger Delta, Godsday Orubebe and an ex-commissioner in Edo State, Kassim Afegbua dump the PDP.

    However, politicians from various parties has paid Wike a visit, although it is unclear the reason for their individual visits, but it may not be unconnected to rumored efforts in pacifying the Rivers governor over the ill-treatment that was allegedly meted to him by his party.

    Below are the names of both past and present governors that has visited the Rivers state governor a visit;

    Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State

    Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed

    Former Anambra state governor, Peter Obi

    Former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso
