“We challenge the outgoing governor, Mr. Wike, to engage in less divisive politics and to refrain from sowing discord among the opposition political parties.


Mr. Nwauju said, “We are aware that the governor has been working so hard to create a false impression of the collapse of the APC structure in Rivers State, despite his previous well-documented statements that he would never have anything to do with a “cancer party” (APC).



Recall that Mr Tinubu, who won the presidential election on the APC ticket on February 25th, is paying a two-day visit to the state to inaugurate a flyover and a courthouse built by Governor Wike’s administration.
