On Thursday, some prominent members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State claimed that the former governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, joined the party merely to salvage his political career. They also expressed their view that the growth of the party in the state should not be attributed to Wike’s contributions.
In a statement signed by Darlington Nwajulu, the state publicity secretary of the APC in Rivers State, on behalf of the party leaders, it was emphasized that the establishment and progress of the APC in the state were the outcomes of the hard work and sacrifices made by numerous loyal members, some of whom tragically lost their lives in the pursuit of building a strong party structure.
The party leaders also expressed their dissatisfaction with President Bola Tinubu rewarding Wike, who, in their opinion, failed to lead effectively when the party faced significant challenges and attacks in the state.
Furthermore, the statement claimed that Wike aligned himself with the APC as a refuge for his political career, and it was asserted that he did not genuinely work in the interest of the party. The party leaders alleged that Wike’s intention was to use his association with the APC in Rivers State as a means to exploit and undermine the party’s interests.
These statements highlight the tensions and differing perspectives within the APC in Rivers State regarding Nyesom Wike’s involvement with the party and the credit attributed to him for its growth.
