2023: Igbokwe Lies, Wike Didn’t Meet Tinubu In France – PDP Chieftain

Published 1 July, 2022

A member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Maina Waziri, has faulted the report that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, met with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in France.

Early reports had it that the romance of the Rivers State governor with chieftains of the APC and the Labour Party (LP) has raised dust in the leading opposition party.
On Thursday, Joe Igbokwe, an APC chieftain, via Facebook, claimed Wike met with Tinubu in France. The claim ballooned the speculation about the impending defection of the Rivers State governor to the APC.

Reacting, Maina, a former Minister of Police Affairs, said he has been with the Rivers State Governor on Wednesday in Istanbul, Turkey.
” Governor Wike came directly from Nigeria to Istanbul, Turkey. He did not go to France as speculated. This is to debunk the propaganda of the APC through Igbokwe. This is fake news orchestrated by the sinking ruling party which is on its way out, ” he said in a phone chat today.
