The presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu has turned down some of the demands of the Rivers state Governor, Nyeson Wike Source familiar with the information revealed that Wike has demanded that Tinubu should force the governorship aspirants in Rivers, Oyo, Abia and Benue states to drop their ambitions for PDP candidates Tinubu, on the other hand, affirmed he would not want to be deceptive, that he can only look at the case of Rivers state, but others look unrealistic and difficult to achieve.

The details of the meeting between the Rivers state Governor, Nyeson Wike and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, have been revealed.

The outcome of the umbrella party’s presidential primary and the selection of its candidate infuriated Wike, a governor of the Peoples Democratic Party. Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta state, will replace him as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate.

Is Wike in search of political relevance after 2023 elections?

As a consequence of this, Wike has been searching for alternative ways to maintain his political relevance after 2023. As a result, his meetings with several opposition leaders, including Tinubu, have been influenced by this search.

The presidential hopeful Tinubu was said to have shown zero commitment to Wike’s demands after Wike had presented them to him, while at the same time explaining why he could not meet the demands. This was after Wike had presented them to Tinubu.

According to individuals with knowledge of the proceedings of the meeting, Wike’s demands are not feasible, and he was not able to bring them up during the discussion. What Wike demands from Tinubu “Ensures if he wins the presidential election, which comes first, he will ensure he does not influence the outcome of the governorship and House of Assembly polls in Rivers, Benue, Oyo and Abia states,” the source revealed Wike’s demands. This is so that candidates in his camp and those of the other governors can win and maintain control of the states. Wike also wants Tinubu to reassure them that his men will be allowed to win seats in the Senate, the House of Representatives, and the governorships of states that are contesting the senatorial election. Wike’s men are running for those positions.

Because the presidential election and the elections for the national assembly were going to take place at the same time, such demands were fruitless. “The APC candidate only said that yes, he could look into the demands for Rivers, but he cannot do the same for Oyo, Benue, and Abia; that it would be very difficult, and that he will not want to come across as deceptive,” the source added. “The APC candidate only said yes, he could look into the demands for Rivers.”

According to the source, Wike wanted Tinubu to coerce the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in Rivers, Oyo, Abi, and particularly Benue, which is the state where the candidate of the ruling party is thought to have a stronger chance of winning, to abandon their political aspirations. In the year 2023, information regarding Atiku’s meeting with Wike, Makinde, and Ortom in London becomes public. Legit.ng reported earlier that sources have revealed that allies of the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, have once again demanded the resignation of the PDP’s national chairman, Iyorchial Ayu, from Atiku Abubakar, who is the party’s presidential candidate.

On Thursday, August 25, 2018, in London, the allies of the Governor made the demand during a meeting between Atiku and Wike to attempt to reconcile their differences.

It has been reported that some members of the PDP’s national working committee are demanding an investigation into the finances managed by Ayu.
