According to a source, Wike, who recently returned from Turkey, has declined to meet with Atiku alone, citing his lack of confidence in any potential personal understanding. Instead, Wike’s staff is holding reconciliation talks with the candidate.

Since Atiku selected Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State, as his running mate in place of Wike, the party has been in turmoil.
