Former Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye has said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, won’t allow Governor Nyesom Wike to pull down the party.
Melaye disclosed that the misunderstanding between Atiku and Wike was a minor issue.
Featuring on Channels Television on Friday, Melaye said people are escalating the issue between Atiku and Wike.
He said: “Democracy is noisy and at times disagreement; but that disagreement doesn’t mean that now we are going to pull down the roof. Governor Wike will not pull down the roof of PDP; he will not do that.
“Atiku Abubakar will not allow anybody; not even Wike to pull down the roof of the PDP. I am telling you that PDP is one big reliable family. These distractions are minor things.
“Governor Wike has his misgivings and he is entitled to it. He is complaining about one or two things and he is entitled to it. I am not going to get into details of what he’s complaining about, but he is aggrieved with one or two issues.
“And as I said, there has been communication between Governor Wike and Atiku Abubakar. And it has not stopped at that; they are still talking. People are over-escalating the situation. It’s normal.”
Wike and Atiku have been at loggerheads since the PDP’s presidential primaries.
The Governor is aggrieved that Atiku ignored him and picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
