A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State and former Chief of Staff to former Governor Rotimi Amaechi, Chief Tony Okocha has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to give the ministerial slot due to Rivers State to immediate past Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike.
Nyesom Wike, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party is one of the defunct G-5 Governors who worked against the presidential ambition of former Vice President of the country, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar lost the presidential election to the standard flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Reacting, Chief Tony Okocha said; “If you have somebody that is more than you, why don’t you invite the person. If he (Nyesom Wike) helped us to win in 2023, are we now going to tell him to come to us in 2027 to help us win? Why don’t we bring him in because he has value to add. No politician in Rivers state today can surmount Wike. No one in Rivers State can challenge Wike. He is the best.”
He stated further; “We are saying that whatever is due us as Rivers state should be handed over to Wike because he knows who worked for Tinubu in Rivers. I would have claimed it all because I was the last man standing when everybody took off but we are saying, look, this man contributed more”
