The Former Governor of Rivers State, Barr, Nyesom Wike has revealed why he visited President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu alongside some chieftains of the PDP at the Villa on Friday.
Wike, in a statement shortly after the visit said they only visited Tinubu to offer him support days after he was sworn-in as the president of Nigeria.
He dismissed reports of plans to defect from the People’s Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress, when asked if joining the APC was one of the reasons he visited.
“No. No plans. Nothing like that in the offing. We are Nigerians and we have come to give the president support,” he said.
“That is what is required. There is no big deal about that,” Wike added.
