Former Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye has said the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, won’t allow Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike to pull down the party.

The former senator disclosed that the cold war between Atiku and Wike was a minor issue.

While speaking on a television session on Friday, Melaye said people are escalating the issue between Atiku and Wike.

He said: “Democracy is noisy and at times disagreement; but that disagreement doesn’t mean that now we are going to pull down the roof. Governor Wike will not pull down the roof of PDP; he will not do that.

“Atiku Abubakar will not allow anybody; not even Wike to pull down the roof of the PDP. I am telling you that PDP is one big reliable family. These distractions are minor things.

“Governor Wike has his misgivings and he is entitled to it. He is complaining about one or two things and he is entitled to it. I am not going to get into details of what he’s complaining about, but he is aggrieved with one or two issues.

“And as I said, there has been communication between Governor Wike and Atiku Abubakar. And it has not stopped at that; they are still talking. People are over-escalating the situation. It’s normal.”

Wike and Atiku have been at cold war with each other since the PDP’s presidential primaries.

The Governor is upset that the former vice president ignored him and chose Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
