Wike is biggest investor in PDP – Fintiri
Says he is capable of reconciling Atiku, Wike, assures of unity in PDP
By Tunde Joshua,
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has been described as the biggest investor in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
His Adamawa State counterpart, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri said this at the weekend while addressing PDP members and his supporters at Yola International Airport.
He said this against the backdrop of his appointment to lead the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s reconciliation team, as part of ongoing efforts at resolving the lingering feud between the latter and the Rivers State helmsman and the party’s presidential candidate.
Assuring party members that Wike is not leaving the party but will back Atiku’s presidential campaign, Fintiri said Wike has made substantial investment in the party to let it all go to waste if he refuses to back Atiku for the 2023 polls.
He said, “Who are his friends in the APC? Are you telling me those who are now romancing with Wike love him?
“I can assure you that with God, the party will put it’s house in order before the 2023 elections.

“Even Wike knows he has been by far the biggest investor in the party. Can he now walk away from all of his investment?
“We recognize he loves his people and I can assure you that he will have a fair deal if it comes to that, just to put the crisis behind us.”
The governor who disclosed that he has been made the chairman of the reconciliation committee set up by Atiku to resolve his feud with Governor Wike, said he is the right man for the assignment considering his relationship with both politicians. He said ” I am an embodiment of both men”.
He expressed confidence that he could reach a truce between former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Governor Wike with the help of God.
He assured that the crisis rocking the party would be resolved amicably before the 2023 general elections.
He also disclosed that there were encouraging signs that the committee would succeed in brokering a peace deal, following his first meeting with While while acknowledging the enormity of the task at hand.
