This screengrab captures Governor Nyesom Wike with some governors, former governors, and others during a meeting at the Rivers State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja on July 31, 2022.


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is hosting a crucial meeting with some governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who coordinated his presidential campaign.

The meeting is ongoing behind closed doors at the Rivers State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Although the agenda of the meeting is unclear, it may revolve around the events that have unfolded in the aftermath of the PDP presidential primary that threaten to split the main opposition party.

Those at the meeting include Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, and Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.

Also present are some former governors such as Donald Duke of Cross River State, Gabriel Suswam of Benue State, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State, and Jonah Jang of Plateau State.
