2023: Do Not Resist Handling Over To PDP – Wike Warns APC

Wike

The All Progressives Congress has been warned by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, not to fight when its time to handover to the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023.

He noted that when the ruling party took over power from the PDP in 2015 the main opposition party didn’t fight.

Governor Wike’s assistant on media, Kelvin Ebiri, revealed this in a statement after the inauguration of some state projects.

He said: “Eleme people, I want to sincerely thank you for the support that you’ve given to me and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”

“Do not relent. Continue because the hope of this country depends on the PDP.”

Wike also advised the Senate President, Ali Ndume and the APC to respect the wishes of Nigerians during the 2023 general elections

“To our special Guest of Honour (Ndume), he should not be angry because we are taking over from them. When they came, we didn’t fight, they took over.

“Now that Nigerians have decided to change them, let them also handover to us as quickly as possible without any fight,” Wike said.

In a related development, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress during the 2019 election in Ebonyi State, Sunny Ogbuoji, has denied reports that he has the plan to dump the party for the Peoples Democratic Party due to the defection of the state Governor, Dave Umahi to the party.

The former lawmaker debunked the reports making rounds on social media while hosting Ebonyi State APC Caretaker Chairman, Stanley Okoro-Emegha, in his Edda country home.
