This piece of advice coincides with the war of words getting intense between Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers and his Edo counterpart, Governor Godwin Obaseki.
“I am calling on every single member of the PDP family to put their differences aside. We are not out to fight against ourselves; our goal is to unite the party, go out as we used to do, win elections as we used to do.
“I call on every member of this party to forget their differences. If there are differences, we must settle our differences in-house. No party member should attack another party member.
“If there are any issues, we have different organs of the party to resolve party differences.”
