The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to mend fences with its members aggrieved by the electioneering and aftermath of the 2019 general election.

As part of the reconciliation moves, the party, which rose from a strategic meeting in Dubai on Saturday, resolved to meet with Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike, who is considered as one of the key malcontents in PDP.

Contrary to expectations, Wike last week, publicly congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari over the judgment of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, which dismissed the complaint by PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the party that his declaration as winner of the last presidential election should be nullified.

The governor, in the wake of criticism against his congratulatory message to the president, had warned the PDP not to toy with the state chapter of the party as he could give them a good fight if the party challenged him.

THISDAY also learnt that at the Dubai meeting, Atiku backed the party’s decision to head to the Supreme Court to appeal the tribunal judgment upholding Buhari’s election.

It was gathered that the leading opposition party was worried by the rising discontent among its members as a result of the aftermath of the 2019 elections and would like to take steps to prevent it from festering in a bid to stave off an imminent crisis in PDP.

THISDAY gathered that the party, at a recent strategy meeting between its Board of Trustees (BoT) and the Atiku in Dubai focused on post-election political realignment and stocktaking.

To kick-start the reconciliation process, THISDAY gathered that the party’s BoT would meet today to discuss the report of the committee that investigated allegations of disobedience to the party’s directive and the crisis that resulted in the emergence of Hon. Ndudi Elumelu and others as the minority leaders of the House of Representatives, against the wish of the party.

The Chairman of the BoT, Senator Walid Jubrin, who confirmed this development to THISDAY, said 10 members of the party’s BoT just came back from Dubai, where they held meeting with Atiku on the state of the party and the next line of action.

He added that the PDP’s BoT would later seek audience with Wike to discuss his grievances and other issues affecting the welfare of the party.

“Yes, we are back to Nigeria after a two-day visit to Dubai where we held crucial meeting with our presidential candidate in the last presidential election, Atiku Abubakar. We left on Saturday and came back Monday. The meeting was fruitful,” Jubrin said.

The governor, in the wake of criticism against his congratulatory message to the president, had warned the PDP not to toy with the state chapter of the party as he could give them a good fight if the party challenged him.
