A 14-member panel has been established to consult and offer recommendations that both candidates will take into consideration as a consequence of the meeting between PDP presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Governor Nyesom Wike of the State of Rivers.

The membership of the panel has not yet been made public since some of the members have not yet received official notification, according to a high party source acquainted with the issue who spoke to Sunday Vanguard.

The insider explained that the panel is anticipated to start with "immediate effect" while speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to speak to the media.

Since Atiku chose Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate for the presidency, the PDP has been mired in conflict.

The development went against the belief in some circles that Wike was the obvious pick given that he finished second in the primary that produced Atiku as the front-runner.

Atiku and Wike had a heated argument about the running mate just two weeks prior.

Due to this, the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) met and attempted to mediate a cease-fire.

Since our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike's meeting, we've made substantial progress, the source claimed.

The meeting, which caught our party's adversaries off guard, has reduced tension and revived hope for a swift conclusion to what our adversaries view as a major conflict.

The source responded, "The question of conditions did not emerge when both men laid aside their differences and spoke to each other candidly. When asked which conditions have been given and what concessions have been made, the source stated.

"Their supporters will undoubtedly follow their lead after seeing this. What is happening right now is looking for a future.

"The 14-member committee's recommendations will be taken into consideration, and appropriate action will be taken. I can guarantee that the campaign council will act after that.

When asked about the turmoil within the party by reporters, PDP National Publicity Secretary Hon. Debo Ologunagba expressed optimism that all pending issues would soon be handled.

The PDP is a very big family, and like other human families, it has problems. However, I'm happy to tell you that we have organs, processes, and procedures for dealing with such problems.

We are not the sinking APC, whose Board of Trustees meeting I don't recall; instead, our BoT just met and established a committee to serve as a mediator between our candidate and Governor Wike.
