Following the intervention of a conciliatory panel former Sen. President David Mark heads, the crisis rocking Nigeria’s main opposition party PDP is expected to have been settled.

But snippets of information trickling from the panel report does not confirm the likelihood of any resolution.

Rather, the main gladiators, Rivers Gov. Nyesom Wike and his kinsman and national chairman Uche Secondus now in full-on war mode.

They both conceded some grounds: Wike agreed Secondus could wait out his tenure as chairman—till December, instead of October first the governor earlier insisted.

But the consensus is inter-laded with mutual suspicion. And on that note, neither Wike nor Secondus has shifted grounds on the court cases.

The Mark panel, among other goals, wants all parties in the conflict to get out of court.

Wike had gone twice, shopping for ex parte orders suspending Secondus, twice. The embattled chairman too secured one nullifying his suspension.

The forum shopping embarrassed Nigeria’s judiciary so much Chief Justice Muammad Tanko intended to whack the justices involved in what he called this nonsense.

The PDP is no less embarrassed.

But Wike and Secondus appear not to give a hoot.

Wike, according to the report, said he didn’t trust Secondus to be a man of his word.

Secondus, too, insisted Wike must first withdraw the court cases.
