Major stakeholders of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, under the aegis of the Amalgamated Bola Tinubu Campaign Council, have called on the President to quickly consider the appointment of the immediate former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, in his ministerial list.
Making the call, the stakeholders led by Chief Tony Okocha, the former Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Government and chieftain of the APC, under the aegis of Amalgamated Bola Tinubu Campaign Council, stated that it has become necessary for the former governor to be compensated for the crucial role he played, in making sure that President Tinubu wins the 2023 Presidential election in the State.
The APC Chieftain who expressed satisfaction with Wike’s role in the emergence of Tinubu as a president, called on the public to disregard the latest political stunts by Magnus Abe, the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, in the March 18 governorship election in Rivers State.
Mr Okocha alleged that Abe left the APC when the party needed him most and is now trying to have a front seat in President Tinubu’s political veranda.
However, he attributed the victory of the party in the state to Wike, explaining that the former governor played a role in keeping the ruling party together when major stakeholders, like Abe, betrayed the party.
“When Ameachi had left, Magnus had left what remained was the little I could control with an amalgamation of support groups,” he said.
