The Chairman of the Rivers State Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Tony Okocha, has described the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike as the dean of politics in Nigeria.
Okocha said Wike’s political influence spreads across Rivers State.
Speaking at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja, Okocha urged Wike to defect to the party and help take over the state
He also accused the Rivers State Governor, Sim Fubara of the demolition of the state House of Assembly complex to prevent the majority of 27 members from sitting.
According to Okocha: “I have wooed him personally, we have told him publicly to come over to the Mediterranean and help us. He is a political juggernaut not just in Rivers but in Nigeria at large.
“He is a force and that is why we won the presidential election after losing the three senatorial seats and all the State House of Assembly members.
Wike is the Dean of Politics not only in Rivers but also in Nigeria. We cannot localise his influence.”
