After meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Friday, Nyesom Wike, the recently-resigned governor of Rivers State, denied rumors that he intended to defect from the People’s Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
Four days after Tinubu took office as president of Nigeria, Wike visited with him to give support along with Seyi Makinde and James Ibori.
Wike, a PDP leader, disputed reports that he intended to move to the APC and denied that doing so was on the agenda of the meeting.
When asked by State House correspondents if switching to the APC was on the agenda of the meeting he had, Wike replied: “No. No plans. Nothing like that in the offing.
“We are Nigerians and we have come to give the president support.
“That is what is required. There is no big deal about that.”
