Breaking: Gov. Wike Set To Dump PDP For APC


Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike may be leaving the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, anytime soon, recent developments have indicated.

Wike, who lost the Presidential Primaries of the party and also missed out on becoming its 2023 vice presidential candidate has been very quiet and is said to have established talks with the ruling All progressives Congress, APC.

On Saturday, Ebonyi state governor, Dave Umahi, arrived in Port-Harcourt and met with Wike  on what he called “a friendly and brotherly” visit at 9pm.

This visit makes it Umahi’s first meeting with Wike after the former dumped the PDP for the APC following an alleged dissatisfaction with the party. Wike and Umahi both contested the primaries of their respective parties.

However, the Rivers Governor is regarded as a victim of intense “powerplay and gang up” by vociferous forces within his party after he was denied the vice presidential candidacy despite being the party’s favourite.

He had been endorsed by the screening committee of the party but was passed over for Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State. This development reportedly left him very unhappy.

He accused PDP’s Southern governors of betraying the power shift agreement.

A South-South Coordinator of the Tinubu Support Group, Mr. Gabriel Abijah, in a recent interview, revealed that Wike will soon join APC.

“As we speak, Wike will soon be a member of APC. we are working on the issue and I can not disclose our modality. He is our brother and we love him.”

If Wike moves to the APC, Political Pundits predict that the PDP may lose the south-south as Rivers state is responsible for almost 2 million votes.
