The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APC PCC) has attributed the victory of its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in Rivers State to Governor Nyesom Wike.
A member of the APC PCC and the leader of the Independent Campaign Council (ICC) in the state, Tony Okocha, made this known during a press briefing in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
Okocha said without Wike‘s efforts and support, the former Governor of Lagos State would not have secured up to the 25% vote which is the constitutional requirement expected from the state.
The APC chieftain also applauded the state governor for contributing to the victory of the ruling APC in the state since 2015.
He said: “Saying Wike was key to the victory of our Candidate Tinubu is an understatement. The governor was instrumental to our victory 1million times.
“He told Rivers people to vote for someone that will support the state. He mobilized human beings and resources to ensure this victory. We commend him.”
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Wednesday, declared Tinubu as the winner of the presidential poll conducted on Saturday, February 25, 2023.
