We have never invited Wike to join our party – APC

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has debunked reports on social media and some traditional media platforms that it has invited the immediate past governor, Nyesom Wike, to join and lead the party.

This was made known in a statement titled ‘APC Did Not Call For Wike’s Admittance Into Its Fold’, signed by the party’s publicity secretary in the state, Darlington Nwauju, and made available to newsmen on Saturday.

“The attention of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has been drawn to calls by impostors and sponsored amorphous groupings acting as fronts for the immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, that APC in Rivers State is calling on him (Wike) to join the same party he had characterized as suffering from cancer,” it read.

“Nothing can be more preposterous than this kite being flown by minions of Wike working hard to justify their pay cheque.

“We wish to unequivocally dismiss any such rumour or sponsored story planted in any medium that Rivers State APC had at any forum invited Wike to join our party none the least calling on Wike to take over leadership of a party he never campaigned for.”

The party dared anyone to provide video evidence of any campaigns where Wike openly campaigned for the APC.

“The terror unleashed on our party members in the course of his eight years maximum ruler ship alone is enough evidence to confirm that Wike has no business with Rivers State APC. Asking him to come and take over is asking an enemy to come and finish off his victims,” the statement alleged.

“We are aware of his schemes to escape justice over the looting of the collective patrimony of Rivers people which is the major reason for his romancing top APC members.
