Tinubu and Wike are allegedly meeting in France for possible collaboration.
Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike is reportedly meeting with All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu in Paris, France.
According to sources, the meeting will also include Benue Governor Samuel Ortom, Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde, Abia Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, and other PDP stalwarts loyal to Wike.
Wike and his team were reported to have left Nigeria early Monday morning.
According to sources, Wike and his supporters are haggling over whether to support the APC candidate in the 2023 presidential election.
They are also expected to meet with Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.
“This meeting is a confirmation that the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, even before the 2022 presidential primaries of the PDP, has been working underground for the APC candidate, Bola Tinubu,” the sources said.
“This move is a clear indication that the Governor Wike-led group has been deceiving the leadership of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in fruitless reconciliation meetings, but has already decided to play the ‘spoiler game’ by destroying the party from within, frustrate the chances of the PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar or when the push comes to shove, move en mass to the APC or Labour Party when the PDP least expected.
“It is important to note here that, part of Governor Wike’s plan ahead of the 2023 general elections, is to use the former governor of Ondo state, Olusegun Mimiko and other surrogates in Katsina, Kebbi, Cross River, Kano and other states to destabilise the campaigns of the PDP, especially the chances of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.”
