Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, is reportedly meeting with Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Paris, France.
Those with the Rivers governor in the French capital include Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue; Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, and other PDP stalwarts loyal to him.
Wike and his team were said to have travelled out of Nigeria early Monday morning.
A picture of him with Ikpeazu, Ortom, singer Davido, among others in Paris is currently circulating on social media.
The sources said Wike and his supporters are horse-trading in the meeting to make a decision whether to back the APC candidate in the 2023 presidential election.
They are also reportedly scheduled to meet with Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party.
The PDP has been embroiled in crisis since the conclusion of its presidential primary election in May.
Wike had contested the presidential ticket, but he lost to the former vice-president.
The cracks widened after Atiku Abubakar named Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta, as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.
