Wike, Atiku’s meeting good omen – Sule Lamido

former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has lauded the fence-mending meeting between Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

Lamido described the meeting as a sign of good things to come and positive signal.

The meeting, which was aimed at addressing the crisis that dogs the party, was held in the residence of a former Minister of Information and Orientation, Prof. Jerry Gana.

Speaking in an interview with PUNCH on Thursday, Lamido said he was not privy to the meeting but it would gladden his heart if such meeting indeed took place.

He recalled how Jerry Gana left the PDP because of Wike but later returned to the party after serious begging by himself, former Senate President, David Mark and PDP national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.

He said, “Honestly I have no idea about it. But if it (the meeting) really held, I will be the most happy person because the person in whose house it was held, Jerry Gana, is one of the three surviving founding fathers of the PDP. All others are dead.

“So, it now means he is becoming consciously disturbed because the party to which he gave his sacrifices, which his colleagues died for, he is now bringing sanity into the party.

“Those are my feelings and that is fine because there was one time when Jerry Gana left the PDP because of Wike. It was me, David Mark and Iyorchia Ayu who went and begged him. You see, there is no one in Nigeria that is greater than this party and you cannot leave because of somebody, you can’t do that.

“So, at the end of the day he is now doing what a leader should do. Today, he is now concerned about the state of the PDP and he is going out of his own way, to make sure whatever might have been our differences are now harmonized.”
