Speaking on the ruckus within the main opposition party, Governor Ortom of Benue State said that Atiku must go and apologize to Governor Wike, whom he denied the chance to be his running mate despite 14 out of 17 people voting for the ticket. Ortom said the move is important in order for peace to reign within the PDP and for major party stakeholders to support Atiku.

There have been rumors of Wike leaving the party ever since the development, but even though the Rivers State governor hasn’t openly stated his plans, an alleged alliance with Tinubu would be a major victory for the former Lagos governor in 2023.

As of the time this story was published, Tinubu was reportedly in France, and it is unclear whether Governor Wike’s decision to travel to France at this time was merely coincidental or an intentional attempt to meet with the powerful man of Lagos outside the shores of Nigeria. Again 2023 is coming with a lot of intrigues and more will sure unfold.
