I Have A Deal With APC - Governor Nyesom Wike Openly Declares Support for Tinubu


After much speculations, members of the G-5 governors, a rebel group of five governors in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have finally agreed to work for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu. 

The five governors met with Tinubu in London to finalise the deal. 

The G-5 members are Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Specifically, inside sources revealed that while Wike and Makinde had decided to work for the victory of Tinubu openly. 

"I have instructed my colleagues in the G-5, the only party that can win the 2023 Presidency is All Progressives Congress APC, and we must do everything possible to approach the Southern Nigeria Leadership of the party.

"We have met with the APC Presidential Candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu. He directed that we officially defect from the PDP to APC, which is a very impossible idea at the moment since some of my colleagues are having PDP Tickets. 

I" personally told Tinubu to allow us stay in PDP and do the job, and after 2023 victory, I will collapse every remnant of PDP under my faction in Nigeria, beginning with Rivers State.

"On my Governorship Candidate Sim Fubara, all I have to say is, let APC win the Presidency and National Assembly first, that should be our priority as Rivers people for now.

"As to the rumour that we have endorsed Labour Party Candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, you should understand that we are talking about Presidency of Nigeria, not Traders' Union nor Anambra Governorship election here..."
