Recall that Atiku chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate after declaring himself the PDP’s presidential candidate.

The former Vice President had disregarded the committee’s suggestions for choosing his running companion.

Wike, who finished second in the party’s primary election, had been recommended by the 16-man committee.

According to Governor Samuel Ortom, Wike is upset because Atiku and the PDP are not treating him with the respect he deserves, which has sparked rumors that the Rivers Governor will leave the PDP and join the APC (APC).

In the midst of the defection rumors, Wike met with a few APC governors.
