He noted that the delay in meeting with Governor Wike was due to his trip abroad and now that his is back, the party and its presidential candidate will do all to reconcile issues with him.

On his part, Ortom said his advice on the need to appease the Rivers State Governor is the best way to go.

He said he is fully behind moves to reconcile with Wike for the overall interest of the party as all hands must be on deck ahead of the 2023 general elections.
