RIVERS: Tinubu’s APC faction vows to support Wike’s guber candidate

THE faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has said it will support Governor Nyesom Wike’s governorship candidate because Wike facilitated Tinubu’s victory.

South-South Coordinator of Bola Ahmed Tinubu Vanguard and Chairman, National Protocol Committee of Tinubu Campaign Council in the state, Tony Okocha, stated this, yesterday, in Port Harcourt during a press conference. He admitted that Wike was instrumental to Tinubu’s victory.

Okocha said Wike mobilised human and material resources to make APC score over 40 per cent votes, adding that without such support, they wouldn’t have been enough the finance election.

He said: “To those who supported us, we will support them also. We are to reciprocate what we got. The APC governorship candidate in Rivers should be able to tell Rivers people and Nigerians if he voted for Tinubu that day. We are doing something not different from what is natural, what is expected, what is reasonable to be done. We’ll support Wike on the governorship election.

“It is an under statement to say Wike was key to the victory of Tinubu in Rivers State. I don’t even know the words to use to say the governor was instrumental one million and one times to making of APC victorious in the state.”

Okocha said the faction’s decision could not be judged to be anti-party because they are only reciprocating goodwill.
