Rivers APC Urges Tinubu To Reject Wike



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has urged President Bola Tinubu not to yield to the tactics employed by certain individuals attempting to enable former governor Nyisom Wike to seize control of the party in the state. The party emphasized that acknowledging Wike would undermine the loyalty of APC members who have remained committed to the party.

In an open letter dated July 6th, addressed to President Tinubu and disclosed to the media at the State House in Abuja on Friday, the Rivers state chapter of the APC also appealed to the President to reject Wike’s covert attempts to impose himself on the party and gain control over its structures in the state.

The letter, signed by the Publicity Secretary, Comrade Darlington Nwauju, cautioned President Tinubu to exercise caution concerning Wike and his associates. It stated that Wike’s professed intentions to support the party at present would only undermine the allegiance of faithful and dedicated APC members as well as other stakeholders.

The party said, “We wish to clear the air that Gov Wike did not deliver any value to our dear Rivers State APC. Mr. President Sir, we wish to recall that during the 2015 presidential election, APC members in Rivers state and their families faced unquantifiable brutality with countless casualties. Yet the Rivers APC resisted the onslaught of former Governor Wike led aggression on innocent party followers and members.
“Dear Mr. President, we wish to clear the air that Gov Wike did not deliver any value to our dear Rivers State APC, rather he fought against our dear Rivers APC.”

The Rivers State chapter implored President Tinubu, known for being a steadfast party member who has constructed his principles of party advancement and continuity on a pragmatic, people-centric philosophy, and recognized for rewarding dedicated service, to reject the overtures of former Governor Wike. This appeal was made because Wike lacks a coherent political ideology that guides his actions and decisions.

“We know that your leadership will not allow those who believe in political thuggery, those known by local and international community as perpetual abusers of our democratic stability and mischief markers, to highjack our dear Rivers APC because they now see party politics as tradeable commodity,” the Rivers APC said.
