Wike invite Kwankwaso, to commission projects in Rivers

Wike invite Kwankwaso, to commission projects in Rivers

Prior to today’s groundbreaking ceremony for the Mgbutanwo Internal Roads in the Emohua Local Government Area, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State welcomed NNPP presidential candidate Rabiu Kwankwaso to Port Harcourt, the state’s capital (Monday).

At the State House in Port Harcourt on Sunday night, Wike welcomed Kwankwaso.

Recall that Wike recently invited high-ranking representatives from opposition parties to commission projects in the state.

Wike claims that state officials invited members of the opposition parties to commission projects so they could witness them personally and report back to their party men.

Adams Oshiomhole, a former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), last Wednesday dedicated the eighth flyover in the state, which is situated on Ada George Road and close to Wike’s private home in Rumueprikom, a rural community in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area.

On Thursday, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president, also dedicated the ninth flyover at the well-known Ikoku crossroads.

Similarly, on Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari officially opened the Nigeria Law School’s Port Harcourt campus.

Iyorchia Ayu’s resignation has been demanded by Wike and the other four governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), collectively known as the G5, since May. They argue that northerners shouldn’t serve as the national chairman and presidential candidate of the PDP.

Ayu, a native of Benue, has insisted that he will remain in office till the conclusion of his four-year term, even though the G5 made Ayu’s resignation a requirement before endorsing Atiku Abubakar’s bid for the presidency in 2023.

The five governors who were chosen on the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, platform, as well as some disgruntled party officials, gathered in Lagos on Sunday for a strategic consultation.

The meeting might have something to do with the movement to have Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP National Chairman, removed.

Following the meeting, the G5 governors, certain disgruntled party leaders, and the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, all agreed that rapprochement was necessary to resolve the problems that had sparked the crisis inside the organization.

Additionally, the party’s disgruntled governors and leaders declared the creation of the Integrity Group.
