Tinubu’s Victory In Rivers Cannot Be Attributed To Wike – APC Campaign




'My Guinean Citizenship Legit' - President Tinubu Admits To 'Dual Citizenship' Claims

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APC PCC) in Rivers State has refuted a claim that the victory of its presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in Rivers can be attributed to Governor Nyesom Wike.

Recall a member of the APC PCC and Independent Campaign Council of the APC, Chief Tony Okocha, had on Thursday, said Wike was responsible for Tinubu’s victory in the South-South state.

He also said the APC got human and other resources from Wike, stressing that the contributions aided the victory of the party at the presidential poll.

But in a chat with reporters on Friday in Port Harcourt, a member of the APC PCC and leader of the Tinubu/Shetima Grassroots Independent Campaign Council, Augustine Wokocha, said the party and the people of the state worked in the interest of the candidate.

Wokocha stated that the victory of the APC candidate could not be appropriated to Wike or any individual, adding that the credit for the victory of Tinubu belonged to the APC and the people of Rivers State that voted for the APC at the poll.

He also denied the claim that the party received N2 billion from Wike to work for the victory of the former Governor of Lagos State.

He said: “We state that the victory of our President-elect was a natural cause of event given his phenomenal pedigree as an astute politician per excellence, an administrator with an unmatchable track record of achievements foresight and bold visions. A man reputed as a Mason of Men. ()

“It is important however to state that the credit for the victory of Bola Tinubu and the APC in Rivers State belongs to all Rivers persons who turned out to vote for the candidate of our party and to the dynamic campaign structure that carried the message of Renewed Hope to all the nooks and crannies of Rivers State.“
