The recent National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held on Thursday, April 18, 2024, was marked by the surprise absence of Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The meeting, which was highly anticipated by political commentators as a potential showdown between Wike and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, saw the latter in attendance along with other PDP heavyweights.

While the reasons for Wike’s absence remain unknown, his non-appearance deviated from the expectations of many within the PDP, especially those aligned with Atiku’s camp.

The meeting, held at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, saw the participation of several serving and former governors, as reported by The Cable.

Prior to the meeting, there were speculations that it could serve as a platform for a confrontation between Wike and Atiku over unresolved issues that have been causing unrest within the PDP since the 2023 general elections.

Additionally, there were calls from both within and outside the party for Wike’s suspension due to alleged anti-party activities.

A pressure group known as PDP 100% Loyalty had specifically called for Wike’s suspension, urging the forthcoming NEC meeting to exercise its authority in line with the party’s constitution.

The group also advocated for Atiku’s support of one of his mentees instead of running for the 2027 presidential election. The absence of Wike and the presence of Atiku at the NEC meeting have sparked further speculation about the internal dynamics and power struggles within the PDP.
