Former Zamfara State Governor Abdulaziz Yari on Tuesday visited Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.
The Rivers State governor also received at his private home at Rumueprikon in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state same day, the 2023 governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina and Kano states, Senator Yakubu Lado, and Mohammad Abacha, respectively.
This was revealed in a statement by Wike’s Special Assistant (Media), Kelvin Ebiri, yesterday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
Shortly after Yari left, Lado and Abacha visited the governor for another round of closed-door meeting, according to Ebiri.
Yari did not state the purpose of his visit, but Lado said he came with Abacha to pay homage to their “friend and brother”.
Lado said, “We paid a courtesy call on our brother, the Executive Governor of Rivers State. Since the election (primary) is over, we have not been able to visit Rivers State to pay homage to him. That is why we are here to tell him that we are together as friends and brothers.”
When questioned about their level of preparedness towards the 2023 governorship elections in Katsina and Kano and their chances, Lado said they were sure of winning the elections.
