Rivers crisis: APC woos Wike to dump PDP



By Hannah Nathan, Warri

The Federal Capital Territory’s (FCT) Minister Nyesom Wike has been invited to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) by the Rivers State chapter of the party because the party needs him.

APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Tony Okocha, said the party is the one in power, ergo Wike should join.

Following the defection of 27 state lawmakers from PDP, he addressed reporters in Port Harcourt.

When asked if Wike’s defection was a part of his plans to join the APC, Okocha responded, “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.”
