The board of trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is currently meeting to find ways to resolve the feud between Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, and the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar over the selection of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as the vice presidential candidate.
The meeting, which is taking place at the national secretariat of the party, is being presided over by its chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin.
Jibrin had announced that the board of trustees would wade into the dispute to ensure that the main opposition goes into the coming elections as a united force.
He said the meeting would produce recommendations on how to end the feud while its members would thereafter meet with the Rivers governor and other former presidential aspirants under the party.
The BoT chairman is expected to address the media on the outcome of the meeting later today.
