The camp of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike have given new condition for peace to reign in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The main opposition party has been battling with issues between its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Wike.
There have been steps to reconcile Atiku and Governor Wike ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
A source in the camp of Wike who spoke with Vanguard on the crisis in the party said what they require is significant guarantees that will restore their confidence in the process of reconciliation.
The source said, “We are not averse to a quick resolution of all the issues, but we require significant guarantees to restore our confidence in the process.”
A top-ranking member of the party who spoke on condition of anonymity on the crisis said Governor Wike does not have anything to lose if the issue is not resolved.
He further stated that Atiku’s camp pissed Wike’s camp off with their conduct and statements.
The source said, “Truth be told, Wike is not contesting for any office at the moment, he has nothing to lose.
“The Atiku camp has angered the Wike camp with the conduct and utterances of some of its members.
“Matters were made matters worse by Atiku’s people who went behind to broker meetings between Atiku and some of Wike’s people in a bid to isolate him.
“I’m aware that some strategists are working hard to isolate Wike to deal directly with those in his camp who have something at stake.
“Several of the governors will be seeking a second term in office come 2023, some will be heading for the Senate, and hence those in this category will see a reason to abandon a course of action which could jeopardize their chances.”
