Rivers: Dump PDP, join us – APC urges Wike

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has extended an invitation to Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), urging him to join their party as he is highly sought after.

During a press conference in Port Harcourt, Tony Okocha, the Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee, emphasized that his party is currently in power and therefore believes that it is in Wike’s best interest to align himself with them.

This call comes after the recent defection of 27 state lawmakers to the APC, further solidifying their influence and reach in the region.

Asked if the defection was part of plans for Wike to join APC, Okocha said: ”I don’t think so.

”Whatever their reason is, when they get to the bridge they will cross it.

‘’Wike is a politician whose name shakes and echoes in the society; so nobody can think or say for him if he will defect to APC or not.

“In 2023, he immensely aided the victory of APC in the state.

‘’The best thing we are asking him to do is to come and join the APC because it is the government in power.”
