A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Joe Igbokwe, has claimed that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has visited the All Progressive Congress’ presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in France.
KEMI FILANI NEWS had reported that Tinubu travelled to France after he held a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday.
In a statement on his official Facebook page on Thursday, Igbokwe claimed that Wike, a former presidential aspirant of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, had visited Tinubu in France.
Igbokwe wrote, “While they are on social media abusing everybody, Governor Wike goes to France to meet Asiwaju.
“Abuse, calling names, hate, and bigotry are no strategy. They hated and abused PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) since 2015, and now they have transferred the aggression to Asiwaju. We wait and see.”
Igbokwe’s claim is coming amid speculations that Wike may dump the PDP due to the fallout over the party’s presidential primary and failure of the party’s presidential standard-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, to pick Wike as his running mate for the 2023 general elections.
However, Wike disclosed on Tuesday that he was in Turkey, alongside his Abia counterpart, Okezie Ikpeazu, for a “much-needed vacation.”
