How PDP crisis started: Wike has been at loggerheads with the opposition party since he lost the presidential primary election to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar in May.
The situation was further compounded when Atiku picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate against the recommendations of the party’s chieftain who suggested Wike as the party’s VP candidate.
Meanwhile, PDP leaders have made efforts to appease Wike to no avail. Instead, the aggrieved governor has been making moves to spite his party’s leadership.
Since the crisis started, Wike has openly fraternised with the chieftains of the ruling APC and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Wike’s meeting with Tinubu: However, on Monday, Wike, who is believed to be one of the strongest PDP leaders in the country was in London to meet Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State.
