The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have suspended its presidential campaign over the protracted rift between presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike.
Wike and his loyalists are currently up in arms with the party over its refusal to remove its national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu due to his failure to honour agreements.
This rift has led to Wike and his loyalists who are majorly state governors pulling out of the presidential campaign of the party.
The party, on Monday, launched its campaign in Uyo and Wike alongside Samuel Ortom (Benue); Seyi Makinde (Oyo); Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and the South South National Vice-Chairman did not attend the event.
According to party sources, the campaign rally was suspended at the instance of Atiku who had drafted three PDP stakeholders to mediate in the face-off between him and Wike.
Former Senate President, David Mark; a former Rivers Governor, Peter Odili and a former Delta Governor, James Ibori, it was gathered, are the stakeholders drafted to be mediators.
It was also gathered that the campaign was called off in an attempt to offer the mediators the needed time to resolve the seemingly intractable infighting within the party.
The suspension automatically affects the planned rally for Zamfara slated for tomorrow, Thursday, October 13 and that of Kaduna on October 15 as they are now indefinitely suspended.
