The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has reacted to the alleged defection plan of the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
The party said it would not welcome the state’s ex-governor as an aftermath of what it termed as “terror” unleashed on the party.
In a statement, the state’s party Publicity Secretary, Darlington Nwauju, frowned at Wike’s move to join the party.
He said Wike is not permitted to join the party due to the terror he unleashed on the party for eight years.
According to the statement, “The terror unleashed on our party members in the cause of his eight years of maximum rulership alone is enough evidence to confirm that Wike has no business with Rivers State APC.”
He said that allowing the former governor into the party would be like giving him a chance to accomplish his plans.
“Asking him to come and take over is asking an enemy to come and finish off his victims.
“We are aware of his schemes to escape justice over the looting of the collective patrimony of Rivers people which is the major reason for his romancing top APC members,” adding that “For those who may be suffering from amnesia, a non-APC member cannot be a cheerleader for the entry of Wike into APC.”
Recall that the ex-governor, during the last presidential election supported Bola Tinubu of APC instead of his party flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party.
