The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, has said claims that he held a meeting with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Wednesday is false.
A photo of the two party leaders had trended with speculations that they held a meeting in Port Harcourt to iron out their differences.
However, the national chairman through his Special Adviser on Media and Communications, Simon Imobo-Tswam, said it was the handiwork of mischief-makers.
Imobo Tswam said, “Dr. Ayu states clearly that he never travelled to Port Harcourt and he has not set eyes on Governor Wike lately.
“The photograph trending on the social media is an old one. The story accompanying it is, therefore, false and mischievous.
“He also adds, for the purpose of factual accuracy, that he is in no way embattled.
“The National Chairman is, rather, enjoying the New Year break with his family.
“The general public, and especially the PDP family, is advised to ignore the story and focus on the historic task ahead of the party next month.”
