Former Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has explained why the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, is meeting with politicians from the All Progressives Congress.
During an interview with The Punch, Melaye said Wike is on a mission to woo other political leaders to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Recall that Wike had been courting several All Progressives Congress leaders, including the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the speaker of the house of Representative, Femi Gbajabiamila, amongst others.
However, the PDPs presidential campaign spokesperson said the former Presidential aspirant of the party is on a democratic mission
Melaye further maintains that Wike is working for the opposition party and his invitation of the APC members to Rivers State is part of his efforts to win more souls for the party.
He said: “Why are you not thinking of it this way that Wike is on a democratic evangelism and he is even trying to woo those people to the advantage of the PDP? Why are you not looking at it from that perspective?”
“I will rather say that it is timely because he needs them to support the PDP to win the election and this is the time to do it and you are not privy to the discussions that Wike had with the APC members he is inviting.
“I still insist that Wike is working for the PDP and inviting those people to Rivers State is also part of his efforts to win more souls for the PDP, because Wike did not go to Lagos State, Lagos State governor came to Wike, and I think you should begin to look at the issue from that angle.”
