Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has reacted to three Governors of the All Progressives Congress visiting Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state in Port Harcourt, yesterday July 8.
LIB reported that Governors Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos had a closed-door meeting with Wike yesterday. Ayodele Fayose, former Ekiti governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain also participated in the meeting.
Addressing reporters during the Eid celebration in Ilorin, Kwara state capital, Saraki stated that the Peoples Democratic Party can’t lose Wike because he’s important to the opposition party.
“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 are 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 definitely resolve its family issue that it currently has.
The fact that some APC governors went to see their colleague, trying to capitalize 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 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.”
Saraki also said that the ruling All Progressives Congress should lock itself up in a room and refuse to come out over its failures in governance.
