The Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, was instrumental in the victory of its candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Rivers State.
THE EDITOR NIGERIA reports that the APC PCC said without the endorsement of Governor Wike, their candidate would not have secured up to the 25% vote which is the constitutional requirement expected from the state.
Speaking, a member of the PCC and the leader of the Independent Campaign Council (ICC) in the state, Tony Okocha said: “Saying Wike was key to the victory of our Candidate Tinubu is an understatement. The governor was instrumental to our victory 1million times.
“He told Rivers people to vote someone that will support the state.
“He mobilised human beings and resources to ensure this victory. We commend him.”
