The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council has declared that Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has officially joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), following the visit of the APC presidential aspirant, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, to the governor at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
Tinubu, who visited Wike after the APC presidential campaign rally at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Elekahia, Port Harcourt, was accompanied by his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, and APC national president, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
Others were Governors of Lagos, Ebonyi and Kebbi States, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Dave Umahi and Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, together as well as the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva and former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi.
The PDP Presidential Campaign Council in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Thursday by the Council’s spokesperson in the State, Dr. Leloonu Nwibubasa, said Tinubu’s visit, which had Wike’s full cabinet members in attendance, marked the end of all speculations by Nigerians and the governor’s incessant denial of his current political standing.
Nwibubasa said Today marked the end of all speculations by Nigerians and hypocritical denials by Governor Nyesom Wike of his current political standing as Wike play host to the APC presidential aspirant Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the council chamber of the Rivers State Government House with all members of the Rivers State administrative council present.
This has not only justified the harmonious position of the Rivers state Presidential.
Campaigns Council that Governor Wike who has wholly engaged himself in anti party activities, has criminalized the mandate of the People’s Democratic Party who offered him the platform upon which he was elected governor.
The utterances of Governor Wike in time past against President Buhari’s policies and poor performance in governance and the manner in which the Governor aspersed and spoke despicably about Bola Ahmed Tinubu for telling Nigerians that he wants to continue Buhari’s legacy of good works, is individual that he has no single strand of integrity and credibility left in him for turning around not just to embrace but to consummate his marriage to a party he described as Cancer.
The show of shame is seen to have been ignorantly celebrated by his faves who are all soon to become internally displaced politicians if they do n’t return to good logic.
The people of Rivers state would have profited more if the Five hundred million Naira that was disbursed for the failed rally of people to the APC presidential rally was suggested into SMEs for wealth and job creation for the surging population of jobless youths or for the payments of retirees benefits and gratuity.
It’s now conspicuous why Governor Wike ran to the courts to seek judicial harbor knowing he was about playing his highly predictable last game of violating the mandate of The People’s Democratic Party.
Governor Wike as a lawyer should know that you can’t suspend the hands of justice in infinity while you continue to break all given laws that govern a system. The day of reckoning is here. The leadership of the party must act to save what’s left of the PDP in Rivers State.
Meanwhile, speaking during Tinubu’s visit to him at Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike prompted the APC presidential aspirant, to prevail on the federal government to ensure that 2023 general election isn’t curtailed.
The governor noted that the Central Bank of Nigeria’s glaring complacence for the Supreme Court ruling on the Naira exchange policy deadline should worry the APC-led federal government, particularly as the 2023 general election draws near
