The Peoples Democratic Party PDP, is in quandary over how to handle the open romance between former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Party officials have kept sealed lips over its plans on how to deal with what some describe as a the most brazen  case of anti-party activity ever embarked upon by a party leader.

The situation took an unexpected turn for the worse with former Governor Wike being named as a leading figure in the National Campaign Council of the APC.

Wike who is the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, was on Tuesday named as a member of APC‘s campaign council for the 2023 Governorship Elections for Bayelsa, Kogi and Imo States.

This is despite the fact that his party-The PDP, on August 2nd, 2023, named him as a member of its National Campaign Council for the same set of elections.

Attempts to get an official response from the PDP leadership have been unsuccessful.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, neither picked nor returned calls to his mobile telephone.

He was yet to respond to a text message on the subject as at the time of filing this report at 9:40pm.

However, a party leader who spoke on condition of anonymity because the party is yet to deliberate and take a decision on the issue said, the party would “definitely act at the appropriate time.”

The party source said, “ We don’t want to make our party all about Wike and his unending tantrums.
