Wike Visited Tinubu In France – Joe Igbokwe Claims

Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and special adviser to Lagos governor on drainage and water resources, has claimed that Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers State has visited Bola Tinubu the party’s presidential candidate in France.

Tinubu is currently in France, having travelled to the European country on Monday.

In a post on his Facebook page, Igbokwe claimed that Wike, who was a former presidential aspirant of the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had visited Tinubu in France.

Igbokwe, who is a former spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State wrote, “While they are on social media abusing everybody, Governor Wike goes to France to meet Asiwaju.

“Abuse, calling names, hate, and bigotry are no strategy. They hated and abused PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) since 2015 and now they have transferred the aggression to Asiwaju. We wait and see.”

Tinubu departed Nigeria on Monday shortly after he held a closed-door meeting with the President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Wike whose next political move is unclear, had disclosed on Tuesday that he was in Turkey, alongside his Abia counterpart, Okezie Ikpeazu, for a “much needed vacation.”

This is coming amid speculations that Wike may dump the PDP due to the fallout over the presidential primary of the party and the failure of the party’s presidential standard-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, to pick him as his running mate for the 2023 general elections.
