Northern Governor Storms Rivers To Visit Wike, As PDP Crisis Deepens
On Tuesday night, Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed met with Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.
Bala arrived at the international airport in Omagwa, Port Harcourt, the state capital, Ejes Gist News reports.
The Bauchi State Governor then drove to Wike’s private residence in Port Harcourt after arriving at the airport.
Unfortunately, the facts of their meeting were not known at the time of reporting this story.
The gathering takes place in the middle of a crisis that has rocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its leadership.
Recall that the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, was suspended from the party on Sunday for alleged anti-party activities and failure to pay his membership dues by the Igorov ward executive committee in Benue State’s Gboko Local Government Area.
Following the ban, the Benue court barred Ayu from presenting himself as the party’s chairman.
Conrad Utaan, a former advisor to Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom, filed the lawsuit in court.
In the case filed before the Benue court, Ayu and the PDP were designated as the first and second respondents, respectively.
A hearing in the matter has been scheduled for April 17.
The meeting between Wike and Mohammed could be unrelated to the crises raging in the main opposition party.
