Wike: Why I invited opposition APC politicians during projects’ commissioning

Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has justified the rationale behind his invitation to representatives from the state’s rival political parties to commission projects.

The governor said he wants them to visit, see what he has accomplished; then bring the word back to their homes.

Wike was speaking on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 in Port Harcourt at the opening of the dualized Ogbunubali Eastern Bypass.

Wike said, “Nobody can stop me from bringing people from other walks of life to see what we have been able to do, and what we are doing in Rivers state.

“Yesterday, the governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu was here. Today the former Governor of Sokoto was here. On Thursday, the Speaker of the House of Representatives will be here to commission the assembly residence.

“Go and see the wonders that God helped us to do.

“Whether you are in Labour Party, APC or PDP, it is to invite you to come and see, and then go back home and compare.”

Wike’s defence came after a former Rivers South East senator, Lee Meaba described his action as anti-party activities.

Sen. Meaba wondered why Governor Wike; in the middle of campaigns is promoting allies of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu; instead of the PDP presidential candidate.

He said, “If we see anybody who wants to stop us from producing the next government at the centre; then the person needs to know what he is fighting for.

“If you stop us from working for Atiku, that is anti-party to the highest level. I stand to be corrected.

“In the middle of our campaign, you line up Tinubu’s men. Why do you line up Tinubu’s men in the middle of our campaign? You are highlighting APC and Tinubu above our own candidate.”
