Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda on Thursday June 23, led the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Senate to meet with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt.
Aduda who has been a long-time ally of Governor Wike was nominated as Minority Leader two days ago to replace the former, Enyinaya Abaribe who defected from the PDP.
Those on the entourage include Deputy Minority Leader, Shuaibu Lau, Minority Whip, Chukwuka Utazi, and Deputy Minority Whip, Danjuma La’ah. Senator Barry Mpigi from Rivers State was also on hand to receive the guests alongside Governor Wike.
Channels Television reported that the meeting was held behind closed doors in the private residence of Governor Wike in Port Harcourt. The senators who arrived at about 3:10 pm, departed at about 6 pm, without stating the purpose of their visit.
The meeting took place, few minutes after the former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe equally visited Governor Nyesom Wike at his residence.
In the last few days, Wike has also been visited by Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, Governors Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, and Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State.
