The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is embarrassing that some of the party’s governors are visiting Nyesom Wike, the state governor.
A number of APC governors in the Southwest recently visited Wike who was elected on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
Speaking at a meeting on Monday in Port Harcourt, Sydney Nyeche, chairman of the party in Obio/Akpor LGA, said the visit to Wike “rubbishes” their efforts in trying to reclaim Rivers.
“Visiting Wike is an embarrassment to our efforts in trying to reclaim the state,” Nyeche said.
“We find it disrespectful that while we are toiling for the party in the state, some group of governors from the west (south-west) will come to the state, go to Rumueprikom and negotiate with Nyesom Wike.
“The attention of the national chairman is drawn to this because we will not tolerate this anymore. We have had enough.
“We urge the national working committee (NWC) of the party to warn these governors from the west to desist from coming to the state to negotiate with the governor.
“This level of embarrassment we have suffered should stop. I cannot be threatened every day because of my political leanings and somebody will come from the west to rubbish our efforts.
“If they cannot come to the state to show solidarity with us, they should stop coming to the state.”
