We’ll welcome Wike if he joins APC—Rivers APC chieftain

Port Harcourt—A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Tony Okocha, has declared that Rivers State governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike will be welcomed into the party if he decides to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to the Leadership newspaper, Okocha, who made the declaration yesterday while addressing journalists in Port Harcourt, described Wike as one of those who helped in the enthronement of the president-elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

He said, “Today, Governor Wike is one of those who is helping in the enthronement of our president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“If Governor Wike wants to come to the All Progressives Congress, we will welcome him. But one thing is clear, I don’t think Nigeria wants to be a one-party country.”

The APC chieftain, who denied being an apologist of the Rivers State governor, described Wike as the best in physical infrastructure development in the history of the state.

Okocha said, “I am not an apologist of Governor Wike, but on physical infrastructure development in Rivers State, Governor Wike is the best.”

He insisted that the APC governorship candidate in the state, Pastor Tonye Cole, did not make any financial contributions towards the party’s presidential campaign rally in the state.
