As the internal wranglings between factions loyal to presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and River State governor, Nyesom Wike continues to worsen, Dele Momodu has sort to calm the storm in an old video.

The video that was shared on his Instagram page showed the moment Governor Wike bowed to Atiku two days before the presidential primaries in Abuja at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.

A former presidential aspirant himself, Dele Momodu sort to, through the video change the narrative and prove that both men are at not loggerhead.

"ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR and GOVERNOR NYESOM WIKE are not enemies... WIKE always gives maximum respect to The WAZIRIN ADAMAWA, as clearly demonstrated in this video at the meeting of PDP Presidential aspirants, just two days before our Presidential primary..."

"PDP must carry everyone along on the basis of equity and sense of justice... May our great party achieve PEACE and UNITY in the days ahead," he captioned the video.

The internal crisis within the party has caused disaffection amongst party faithful with many calling for the removal of National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

Despite this, Atiku Abubakar listed Wike as a member of his Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
