There are strong indications that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress met with Governor Nyesom Wike in France, ENigeria reports.
This development is coming amid speculations that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is not happy that he is denied the opportunity to be running mate with Atiku Abubakar who is the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party – PDP.
Wike who had reportedly embarked on a holiday trip to France alongside his counterpart Okezie Ikpeazu – governor of Abia State is said to have had a secret meeting Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to discuss the later’s 2023 political move, ENigeria Newspaper learnt.
Joe Igbokwe, a Chieftain of the APC who spoke on the foregoing disclosed that “While they (Peter Obi supporters) are on social media abusing everybody Gov Wike goes to France to meet Asiwaju. Abuse, calling names, hate and bigotry are no strategy”, he said.
Recall that the PDP has been somewhat uneasy since Atiku chose Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate, with the majority of governors withdrawing their support for the Atiku-Okowa ticket.
Speaking on the ruckus within the main opposition party, Governor Ortom of Benue State said that Atiku must go and apologize to Governor Wike, whom he denied the chance to be his running mate despite 14 out of 17 people voting for the ticket. Ortom said the move is important in order for peace to reign within the PDP and for major party stakeholders to support Atiku.
There have been rumors of Wike leaving the party ever since the development, but even though the Rivers State governor hasn’t openly stated his plans, an alleged alliance with Tinubu would be a major victory for the former Lagos governor in 2023.
As of the time this story was published, Tinubu was reportedly in France, and it is unclear whether Governor Wike’s decision to travel to France at this time was merely coincidental or an intentional attempt to meet with the powerful man of Lagos outside the shores of Nigeria. Again 2023 is coming with a lot of intrigues and more will sure unfold.
