Siminalayi Fubara, the Rivers State Governor, was noticeably absent from the recent stakeholders meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held in Abuja.
The meeting, attended by PDP flag bearer Atiku Abubakar and other party leaders, discussed various matters of importance.
Fubara’s absence has raised speculation that he remains loyal to his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, who has not reconciled with the PDP.
It is believed that Wike advised Fubara not to spend money on the party as he did during his time in power.
The meeting emphasized the importance of party discipline and unity, and expressed support for Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa as the PDP’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates.
The PDP also criticized President Bola Tinubu for the number of his ministerial nominees and advised the federal government to reduce the cost of governance.
Additionally, the meeting urged peaceful dialogue and diplomacy in response to the recent military coup in the Republic of Niger.
