Wike meets APC chairman, Ganduje, amidst defection rumour

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu nominated minister, Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday met with the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje.

Wike met with Ganduje at his residence in Abuja.

This was disclosed on Twitter by Wike’s close associate, @TopboyChriss, who tweeted: “Nyesom Wike today visited the National Chairman of APC, Alhaji Umar Ganduje, at his residence in Abuja.”

The visit is amidst rumour that the immediate past governor of Rivers state is mulling defection to the ruling party, APC.

A few weeks ago, President Bola Tinubu nominated Wike as one of his ministers.

Two weeks ago, Wike was screened and cleared by the Senate for the ministerial position.

Wike, a former governor of Rivers State, is a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

During the presidential election, Wike refused to work with PDP’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

He opted to work for Tinubu during the presidential election.
