The camp of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has reportedly pulled out of the Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The Wike camp also vowed not to partake in Atiku’s campaign activities pending the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.

Naija News learned that the Wike camp made the decisions at a strategic meeting held in Port Harcourt in the early hours of Wednesday.

It was gathered that the Wike Camp decided to hold the meeting following the vote of confidence passed on Ayu as the party’s national chairman by the National Executive Committee (NEC) despite their demand for his resignation.

Those in the Wike Camp include Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, former Governor Donald Duke of Cross River State and many others.

The Wike camp had earlier listed some options available to them ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The options are listed below.

To accept the status quo and cooperate with the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar;
To insist on the sack of Iyorchia Ayu and be uncommitted to the 2023 poll if Atiku refuses to bow to pressure;
To remain in the party and work against it;
Go into a covert alliance with the ruling party to prove its strength as a Caucus in PDP;
To leave the party; and
To refuse to fund the party at all levels.
