Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe, has held a private meeting with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt.
Orubebe visited Wike three days after he announced his departure from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a letter dated June 20 and addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Senator lyorchia Ayu.
In the letter which was acknowledged by the office of the National Chairman, Orubebe said the PDP is not ready to reclaim power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections.
Wike who is reported to be aggrieved with the outcome of the 2023 PDP presidential primary which he lost to ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar has been hosting several visitors at Government House Port Harcourt. But the Rivers state governor has remained silent since his loss.
Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi, Bauchi state governor Bala Mohammed, and Presidential candidates of Labour Party and NNPP, Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso have all met with Nyesom Wike at the Rivers State government house, Port Harcourt.
